The Swiss Polar Institute regrets to announce that it has not received the requested research permits from the Danish authorities within the necessary deadlines. The Swiss Polar Institute attaches great importance to working with the full support of local authorities. For this reason and given the uncertainty related to the permit delivery date, the Swiss Polar Institute has decided to postpone the GLACE expedition in order to secure all necessary permits and offer optimal conditions for the GLACE scientific expedition for the coming years. Further details will be communicated in due time.
