National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR) is one of the inter-university research institutes in Japan. The mandate of NIPR is to conduct scientific research on and field observations in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. The main research area covers space and upper atmosphere sciences, meteorology and glaciology, geoscience, and bioscience. The field stations include Syowa and Dome Fuji Stations in the Antarctic, and Ny-Ålesund Station in the Arctic, as well as participation of EISCAT (European Incoherent Scatter radar). Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) and Arctic Challenge for Sustainability (ArCS) are two major programs that NIPR is currently promoting as the core institute in Japan. Various research collaborations with scientists in Japan and overseas, and education of graduate students/young researchers are also important functions of NIPR.
