SIOS-KC effort to build capacity includes activities to enhance and facilitate sharing of knowledge, technologies, expertise, and experiences.
The annual Polar Night Week in January is the major meeting platform and gathering of the SIOS community where the SESS report is released, working groups meet physically, science projects are presented and the basis for new cooperation is laid. In addition, SIOS-KC in cooperation with its members organises workshops that bring together researchers from different domains and disciplines to tackle specific themes. SIOS hosts periodic webinars and online conferences to provide a platform for researchers to discuss their scientific outcomes.
SIOS-KC also conducts training courses where the SIOS community shares its knowledge to provide researchers, PhD students and technicians with necessary skills to make best use of the SIOS infrastructure. The virtual hangout provides a platform to meet in a casual setting.
