Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS)
goal Establish an Arctic Earth Observing System in and around Svalbard that integrates the studies of geophysical, chemical and biological processes from all research and monitoring platforms.
To achieve this
1. Organize all infrastructure and all research and monitoring activities into four observation platforms being land-based, sea-based, glacier/ice-based and space/air-based.
2. Assess the present infrastructure and activities to identify gaps and weaknesses in the system. Invest in additional infrastructure and activities to close these gaps.
3. Establish a Knowledge Centre in Longyearbyen for data assessment, integration, storage and delivery, education and outreach, cooperative efforts, and input to Earth System modeling.
4. Take actions to coordinate the SIAEOS initiative with complementary ESFRI efforts as well as other Earth Observation Systems and related modelling efforts.

On 6-8 May a workshop on the Ny-Alesund Science Flagship 'Terrrestrial Ecosystems' took place. The workshop aimed for a contribution to the Ny-Alesund science plan with focus on international collaboration and an analysis of potential gaps in our present research focus. The resulting document should be a master plan for future directions of research in Ny-Alesund, also in the light of SIOS.
