On March 24, the University of Alaska Anchorage and Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. will hold the first ever Anchorage Arctic Research Day. This event will bring together the rich Arctic research community within the municipality of Anchorage to share information about the diversity of research and creative activity being conducted by researchers from a broad array of organizations, and foster new connections and collaborations.

This gathering will include participants from government, industry, academic, not-for-profit, and indigenous groups, and will feature presentations by leading researchers across the natural and social sciences, health, engineering, humanities, and arts. A panel of IARPC Collaboration Team leaders will also present on how and why to engage with IARPC and the Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021.

Highlights of the day include keynote speaker Fran Ulmer, Chair of the Arctic Research Commission of the United States, a discussion of the recently released Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Arctic Research Plan, and a poster reception highlighting research and creative activity from the wide range of participants from throughout the Anchorage Arctic research community.
