IARPC Launches Website Updates to Support Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021
February 7, 2017
By Jessica Rohde
recently released Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021, and we have now updated this website, Collaborations, to support the implementation of the new Plan. On this, the public facing side of our website, you can browse and download the new Plan under the “Arctic Research Plan” tab. The Plan supports U.S. policy across a range of scales—from Arctic peoples and communities to the role of the Arctic in the Earth System—and is organized around nine research goals: Health & Well-being — Atmosphere — Sea Ice — Marine Ecosystems— Glaciers & Sea Level — Permafrost — Terrestrial Ecosystems — Coastal Resilience —Environmental Intelligence (observations, data, models).
Nine collaboration teams, one for each goal, will implement the plan. You can view all teams, sub-teams, and self-forming teams under the “Teams” tab. Led by Federal and non-federal partners, collaboration teams will continue to involve the broader Arctic research community through Collaborations. This platform allows to engage with all available research talent, such as Federal government and academic scientists, researchers and other stakeholders in the State of Alaska, Alaska Natives, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and overseas researchers and institutions. We encourage anyone interested in joining our community of 1000+ Arctic researchers and stakeholders to request an account on our member space, where you will be able to see the additional details of Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021 and connect with colleagues to accelerate the pace of Arctic research.
