Eos published an article titled, “New Arctic Science Cooperation Agreement Comes into Force”. The article reads in part as follows:
Scientists and diplomats are applauding a new agreement on international scientific cooperation in the Arctic, which entered into force on Wednesday. They said it will help to advance Arctic research across borders and reduce obstacles to research at a time when the region is undergoing rapid changes. Administrative obstacles sometimes have blocked or delayed scientists from having access to Arctic research sites in other countries, they noted.
