From India, the Antarctic conference reflects on the impact of climate change on biodiversity

The 10th Open Science Conference of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) will be held until August 10th, and a research team from BASE Millennium Institute will present the results of their research on biodiversity and international polar law.

As an opportunity to exhibit work, research progress, network building and involvement in scientific activities of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR, the Open Science Conference began its tenth version with India as the host country.

The 10th SCAR Open Science Conference will be held from August 1st to August 10th, 2022 in an online mode, free and open to all. The conference is organized by the National Center for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR), an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) of the Government of India.

From Chile, more than a dozen researchers from the Millennium Institute Biodiversity of Antarctic and Subantarctic Ecosystems (BASE) will present the results of their research on biodiversity, conservation and international polar legislation: “In times when climate change reminds us of the importance of promoting with greater strength of Antarctic science for the benefit of society, it is a duty for us to participate in the 10th SCAR Open Science Conference”, said Dr. Elie Poulin, director of BASE Millennium Institute. “Our young researchers will also show their progress in Antarctic research, a unique and enriching opportunity, which demonstrates the fertile and dynamic environment that we are fostering from the Southern Hemisphere and Chile in terms of human capital training in Antarctic issues,” he added.

In line with this year’s online version, the organizers invite you to share images and reflections with the hashtag #SCAR2022 on social networks and follow broadcasts on the SCAR YouTube channel. More information at
