November 6, 2019
By Jessica Rohde

November 7, 9 AM Alaska / 1 PM Eastern

The preparation of the Arctic Research Plan 2022-2026 will begin soon, with a view to release in late 2021. This meeting is intended to discuss the rules governing Federal plan writing, and consider paths for creating an equitable and inclusive plan.

WHAT IS THE ARCTIC RESEARCH PLAN? The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is required to develop and implement a five-year research plan in consultation with the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, the Governor of the State of Alaska, residents of the Arctic, the private sector, and public interest groups. The Plan intentionally builds on the strong intellectual accomplishments and ideas of the research community at the Federal, State, local, and tribal levels as well as inclusion of ideas from the academic community, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and overseas entities.

This meeting will include:

  1. The IARPC Plan writing process- Sara Bowden, IARPC (10 mins)
  2. Experiences from previous plan writing process- Sandy Starkweather, Brendan Kelley,  Martin Jeffries (15 mins)
  3. Open discussion on paths for creating a more equitable and inclusive Plan (20 mins)
