In March 2007 a team of social scientists sets out from the village of Lovozero on snowmobiles with a tent and other equipment loaded on freight sleds. They connect with one of the herds of the Reindeer Herding Cooperative "Tundra" and move with the animals. The team of researchers continues to accompany the herd through the annual cycle (until February 2008). The researchers plan to involve at least one school teacher from an EU country in the NOMAD camp in autumn 2007, and several university students from Murmansk Region at various stages of the project.
NOMAD is financially supported by: the Siberian Studies Centre of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (Halle, Germany); the Roald Amundsen Centre for Arctic Research, University of Tromsø (Norway); the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Tromsø (Norway).
