The BMBF project AURORA BOREALIS 

March 2007–January 2009

The German Science Council evaluated the project AURORA BOREALIS in May 2005 and recommended the construction of the research icebreaker in 2006.

The project ERICON-AURORA BOREALIS 

March 2008–February 2012


The AURORA BOREALIS project is currently pursued on a European level in the European Polar Board (EPB) of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The ESF provides the necessary financial resources and coordinates the European Research Icebreaker Consortium - Aurora Borealis (ERICON - AB). The establishment of the consortium was one of the main goals to achieve in the previous BMBF project.
