Reminder: Sept 1 webinar on NSF funding for Arctic resident-researcher collaborations
Tomorrow (Sept 1), 3:30pm ET / 11:30am AKT, join the National Science Foundation for a program manager chat about the recent Dear Colleague Letter announcing potential support for community collaborations between NSF-funded Arctic researchers and residents.
Through this Dear Colleague Letter, NSF's Arctic Sciences Section (ARC)
in the Office of Polar Programs is encouraging submissions of proposals
for projects that will enrich interactions and improve collaboration
between Arctic residents and NSF-funded researchers. Through increasing investment in Arctic research in recent years, NSF
has created greater opportunities for researchers to work in the
Arctic, to build strong partnerships with Arctic residents, and to
create projects in collaboration with northern communities. The Arctic
Sciences Section wishes to support the development of additional
research capacity of Arctic residents and local and regional
organizations to strengthen communication and to enhance partnerships
with the academic community that NSF typically supports.
