European nations operate world-class research infrastructures in the Arctic and Antarctic, which result from a long history of polar research and significant investments made by national polar programmes. The European Polar Infrastructure Catalogue, which EU-PolarNet has compiled, identified 32 European stations in the Antarctic and on the Sub-Antarctic Islands (Fig. 1) and 32 stations in the Arctic (Fig. 2), with 2 icebreakers, 14 ice-strengthened research vessels and an aircraft fleet operating at both poles. These infrastructures are of extreme scientific value, some of them are either strategically located or their mobile capabilities provide them with unique capacities. European infrastructures are based over a large geographical breadth, providing a critical network and a valuable asset for the European Research Area. The European Polar Research Programme (EPRP), created by EU-PolarNet, delineates the future strategy lines for European polar research. It has been developed by .....
