Svalbox is since 2016 supported by various financing models, often through co-operation and networking projects. Our most generous financial partner has been the University of the Arctic (www.uarctic.org) who has financed the “Circum-Arctic Geology for Everyone” project (2016-2017 and 2017-2018), the “High Arctic Large Igneous Province Database” project (2018-2019) and the “Svalbox2020” project (2020-2022). In addition, the Research Council of Norway, through the Svalbard Science Forum, finances the “Svalbox 2.0” co-operation project (2021-2023). Additional funds for data loading and visualisation were provided by the Research Centre for Arctic Petroleum Research (www.arcex.no), the Petroleum Research School of Norway (www.nfip.no) and the University Centre in Svalbard.
University of the Arctic
The University of Arctic financed a number of UNIS-led projects (see project page for details) through which Svalbox developed into the teaching and research tool it is today.
Svalbard Science Forum
The Svalbard Science Forum, a branch of the Research Council of Norway with offices in Longyearbyen, is supporting the Svalbox project with a Svalbard Strategic Grant project, “Svalbox 2.0”.
