The Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) works as an information and coordination organ for research on the whole of the Svalbard archipelago. The Research Council of Norway (RCN) chairs SSF. The SSF also keeps an updated record of infrastructure, logistics, research bases, application processes, and other relevant topics for scientists and research projects coming to Svalbard. Additionally, SSF also provides the research community with a database to keep an updated and comprehensive overview of previous, ongoing and future research to be carried out on Svalbard and in Ny-Ålesund.This is the RiS (Research in Svalbard) database. The secretariate is located in Longyearbyen.
Kings Bay AS participates in the SSF and requires all researchers to register their projects in the RiS database before booking a stay in Ny-Ålesund. The Governor of Svalbard also requires researchers to register in the database to improve the overview of research on the archipelago.
