Draft Arctic Research Plan Information Sessions

IARPC has released a draft of the next five-year Arctic Research Plan, which will span from 2022-2026. We are now asking the public to comment on the draft plan by June 11, 2021. To provide additional information about the draft plan contents and development, we are hosting a series of one-hour information sessions.

Each information session will provide an overview of IARPC, the timeline for developing the Arctic Research Plan 2022-2026, the contents of the draft plan, and how to submit comments on the draft. In addition to this information, each webinar will provide a deeper dive into one of the plan priority areas or the foundational activities. We will also host a teleconference-only information session for individuals who cannot access webinars due to lower internet bandwidth.

Each webinar will be recorded. To view recordings, click the link below to the past webinar you would like to watch, or visit our YouTube channel.
