IARPC consults non-Federal researchers in shaping and implementing the Arctic Research Plan

Published by the Executive Office of the President, the Arctic Research Plan 2017–2021 (“the Plan”) intentionally builds on the strong intellectual accomplishments and ideas of researchers at the Federal, State, local, and tribal levels as well as inclusion of ideas from the academic community, non-governmental organizations, and industry. By participating in a Collaboration Team, you can contribute to implementing this Plan.
