Online Arctic Science Communication Training for Early Career Scientists
As interdisciplinary,transdisciplinary, andconvergentscience collaborations become more common when addressingbig ideas in Arctic research, scientists require the tools and skills to effectively communicate about their work with various audiences and collaborate across disciplinary boundaries. Through this program, theInteragencyArctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) seeks to:
train early career scientists (ECS) with the communication skills needed to engage with various audiences, from non-scientists to researchers from other disciplines, and to collaborate with researchers from fields and sectors other than their own,
engage them in the research policy process,
facilitate connection with Federal program managers and senior researchers, and
give an opportunity to present their work without the expense of traveling to a conference.
IARPCseeks eight ECS to enroll in this, the second cohort of this program. The ECSs will identify a collaboration team of interest, participate in and contribute to IARPCCollaboration’s work, and produce a “lightning talk” about their own research to be delivered as part of theIARPCPublic Webinar Series and at a collaboration team meeting.
