To generate cutting-edge scientific knowledge and train young researchers around the biodiversity of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic ecosystems in order to understand, evaluate and predict the effects of climate change on the biota. This will allow it to propose conservation and governance policies for Antarctica, the Southern Ocean and sub-Antarctic regions, as well as raising awareness and communicating to a broad public about the threats facing these ecosystems.
We intend to be a scientific institute of world reference in cutting-edge research on biodiversity, conservation and governance of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic ecosystems.
- To consolidate and strengthen scientific research of excellence in Chile, in the field of biodiversity, conservation and international law in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions, through scientific publications and work.
- To Generate inter and transdisciplinary knowledge on biodiversity, conservation and international law, in order to protect and preserve Antarctic and sub-Antarctic biodiversity.
- To Educate, train and develop skills in undergraduate, master’s and doctoral students, with the mentoring and experience of researchers from the Millennium Institute.
- To consolidate a virtuous global collaboration network based on research of excellence on biodiversity, conservation and international law, led by researchers from the Millennium Institute.
- To communicate and transfer knowledge to opinion leaders, decision makers, and the general public, regarding the scientific results of the BASE Millennium Institute, developing innovative spaces for science communication on physical and digital platforms.
