Register to Attend Here
The Arctic Research Funders Meet & Greet will provide an informal opportunity for Arctic researchers to connect with multiple agency program officers to gain insight into each organization’s Arctic research interests. The event has been planned using a speed networking format that will allow representatives from each funding organization to meet with small groups of up to 10 people for approximately 10-15 minutes at a time. Researchers will be invited to move between breakout rooms hosted by agency staff in a round-robin small group format.
Small group conversations will explore the Arctic research interests of each funding organization, how proposals are evaluated for funding consideration, or provide an opportunity to address a handful of specific questions that would be appropriate for group discussion.
Representatives from the following Arctic research funding agencies have confirmed their attendance:
- U.S. National Science Foundation
- 's Arctic Research Program
- 's Cryosphere Program
- U.S. Department of Energy
- U.S. Arctic Research Commission
- North Pacific Research Board
There is no cost to participate and you do not need to be a member of either or to attend. We do encourage you to register early, however, as registration may be capped to ensure small group sizes.
The Arctic Research Funders Meet & Greet is the third activity in new event series designed to provide participants with the opportunity to:
- Network with potential project partners
- Workshop interdisciplinary research ideas
- Meet with Arctic research funders
