EVENT: Arctic Research Plan 2022-2026 Launch Webinar
November 22, 2021
In December, the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) will release the Arctic Research Plan 2022-2026. The new research plan builds from the 2017-2021 plan, and outlines a bold five-year vision for federal agencies to address emerging research questions in the Arctic.
Please join IARPC for a launch webinar introducing the new plan on December 16 from 2:00PM - 3:00PM EST.
Speakers will include Larry Hinzman (OSTP/IARPC), Nikoosh Carlo (IARPC), Max Showalter (IARPC), and Roberto Delgado (NSF). Presenters will share successes from the previous Arctic Research Plan (2017-2021), provide an overview of the new plan, and discuss how the research community and Arctic residents can engage in the new plan’s implementation. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
This webinar will be recorded and posted on the IARPC Collaborations website and YouTube channel. Preregistration is not required.
