The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is currently soliciting information from the Arctic research community and the public to help shape the next Arctic Research Plan for FY 2017-2021. They are looking for funded projects or programs that IARPC can incorporate as Research Objectives and Performance Elements in support of the new research goals. Research Objectives are a specific set of tasks contributing to a research goal (e.g., Improve knowledge of biophysical and chemical interactions and feedbacks as well as their role in the regional context). Performance elements are specific, measurable, attainable activities that demonstrate progress towards achieving the objectives. (e.g., Complete three years of abundance surveys of marine species in the region).

This is the best opportunity for inclusion of your information during the the drafting process. A complete draft will be available for public comment during summer 2016.
