According to the press service of TSU, the Arctic Awards is traditionally presented to eminent public figures, representatives of culture, business, and sports for contributing to the development of the Arctic region. In 2018, the awards were presented in nine nominations, 2500 projects passed the examination, implemented in 120 countries.

Kirpotin was noted in the nomination "Achievements in development and mastering of Arctic and Antarctic" as the only Russian participant of the international project T-MOSAiC, which organizes ground-based researches in the Arctic region.

"I don’t consider this award as personal. I work in a team, there are a lot of people behind me, and this is very important. You know, there is such a saying "One cannot conquer alone", in the Arctic one is not only not a warrior, he is simply not a goner. T-MOSAiC brings together like-minded people, people in love with science and the Arctic, and I am glad that this project has received such high recognition", - Kirpotin is quoted in the message.

It is explained that the T-MOSAiC project was based on the megaprofile approach developed by the staff of the BioClimLand Center. More than 10 years ago, they set about creating a network of research stations that stretch from north to south and are used for year-round observations and experiments. Now the duration of the megaprofile - is more than 2500 kilometers from Mongolia to the deep Arctic. Sampling at the stations is carried out using uniform protocols, which allows to monitor continuously environmental changes by various parameters and obtain comparable world-class data.
