IARPC Arctic Research Plan

In December 2016, the Executive Office of the President released IARPC's Arctic Research Plan: FY2017–2021 to advance research in areas of common interest to IARPC Agencies. The IARPC 5-year plan was drafted with contributions from all IARPC agencies and reviewed by the public. It 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, and industry.

Nine research goals will inform national policy and benefit significantly from interagency coordination

These research goals do not encompass all Federal Arctic research activities that will occur over the next five years. Many important investigations outside the scope of this plan will continue to be conducted within individual agencies or through other interagency collaborations.
