Arctic Research Across Boundaries

Organized by the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) 25. July 2016

This interactive session, "How to Connect with Arctic Research Across Boundaries," will explore what is being done, and what could be done, to bridge boundaries and advance research.

Arctic research spans disciplinary, institutional, national, and sector boundaries in pursuit of improved understanding and decision making for this vital region.  In order to work effectively across these boundaries, it is important to focus on effective communication, coordination, and collaboration. The session is designed to inform those engaged in research, decision-makers interested in a more effective research enterprise, and others interested in better understanding of the Arctic.

ARCUS – an international organization that connects across boundaries through networks such as the Sea Ice Prediction Network, Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH), and PolarTREC programs – will be joined in this session by transboundary research organizations such as the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, the Arctic Institute of North America, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and Isaaffik Arctic Gateway.
