SEARCH & IARPC will hold a joint Town Hall session at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting taking place in New Orleans, LA 11-15 December 2017.
Title: Arctic Science for Stakeholders - Evolving Approaches
Date and Time: Thursday, 14 December 2017, 12:30-1:30pm
Location: New Orleans, LA - Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Room: 252-254
Abstract: The Interagency Arctic Research Committee (IARPC) and the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) recognize the importance of science that is actionable by stakeholders. This town hall will share their evolving approaches and engage the community in discussions of best practices and new approaches. Examples of Arctic research addressing stakeholder needs will serve as test cases to examine: how are needs identified; how are questions appropriately framed to meet stakeholder needs; and what promotes and constrains research addressing those needs? The executive directors of SEARCH and IARPC will moderate discussion among SEARCH and IARPC teams and the broader community.
