The ARCSAR Network consists of 21 partners in 13 different countries and was established with funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme for a 5-year period from 2018 – 2023.

The ARCSAR Network brings together stakeholders representing SAR practitioners, industry and research from the Arctic and North-Atlantic region. The ARCSAR network will aim at preparing regional stakeholders to cope with the Security and Safety threats that will result from increased commercial activity in the region including traffic through the Northern passages, cruise traffic, and offshore oil and gas activity. ARCSAR will identify the need for innovation within SAR and oil spill capacities, among other relevant areas.

GOSR has joined the ARCSAR Network’s External Advisory Board as of October 2019.
