The Research Centre for Arctic Petroleum Exploration, ARCEx, is a research collaboration between academia (6 universities and 4 research institutes) and industry (8 energy companies) with support from the Research Council and Norwegian authorities.

Education and training is an integrated part of ARCEx.
