The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is initiating implementation of the Arctic Research Plan 2017-2021. My colleagues, Andrew Balser (DOD), Benjamin Jones (USGS) and myself (NAU), will be leading the Permafrost Collaboration Team (PCT), and we invite all interested researchers and stakeholders to participate in our first meeting on 9 May at 10 AM Alaska Time (2 pm EST).
At this meeting, Torre Jorgenson from Alaska Ecoscience will talk about 'Progress toward understanding the response of permafrost to climate change in Alaska'.
Why participate in IARPC Collaborations?
· Communicate regularly with Federal program managers and the research community. The conversations enabled through IARPC Collaborations have created an unprecedented level of information exchange. The research community benefits from the ongoing, monthly meetings where they can present their research to peers and program managers and learn about new research efforts within their field. Program officers, always eager to learn about research activities and priorities from the community, are able to do so on a regular basis. Program managers learn about one another’s programs, and identify synergies between programs and programmatic gaps.
· See your research results in reports to Congress and Federal agencies. Reporting on implementation of the Arctic Research Plan goes to the IARPC principals, chaired by the Director of the National Science Foundation and made up of representatives of 14 Federal agencies, and to Congress. Anyone may submit their contributions to our Arctic Research Plan and see their research in these reports.
How do I participate?
We hope you will consider participating in PCT meetings, posting information on the website and getting involved in a meaningful way that benefits you and the work you are doing. If you should have any questions, feel free to contact me.
