Deadline Extended - Seeking Comment on the Next IARPC 5-Year Arctic Research Plan: Federal Register Notice Announcement

April 30, 2020
By Kelley Uhlig

IARPC will begin developing the next 5-year Arctic Research Plan and we want to know what should be included. Your thoughts and ideas are valued and welcome.

A scoping Federal Register Notice (FRN) for the next Arctic Research Plan was published on April 3rd and will be open for comments until August 2nd. Please see the full FRN here.

The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is initiating development of the next Arctic Research Plan, as called for in the Arctic Research Policy Act (ARPA) of 1984 (15 U.S.C. 4108). The Plan aims to strengthen interagency communication, coordination, and collaboration of the 14 Federal agencies, departments and offices that make up IARPC. The Plan will address critical needs in Arctic research and identify those areas where research in the Arctic can be improved through interagency collaboration. 

Comments can be made via the Federal Register or Email to IARPCPlan@nsf.gov

More information on Plan development can be found at https://www.iarpccollaborations.org/arctic-research-plan-2022-2026.html.
