The MARPART Consortium consists of 13 universities and research institutes that focus on emergency management and crisis preparedness. The consortium is coordinated by Nord University in Bodø, Norway and assesses the risk of increasing transport activity and challenges for search and rescue (SAR), management and emergency operations. There are several interlinked projects and a UArctic Network on Arctic Safety and Security.
Project leader is professor Odd Jarl Borch (Nord University). UNIS research associate Nataly Marchenko is the UNIS representative in the consortium, involved in MARPART-1 and 2, the MAREC project and the UArctic network.
