Arctic Funders Meet and Greet
The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) are pleased to announce a special networking activity for Arctic researchers to meet with staff from Arctic research funding agencies on Friday, 14 December 2018. The event will take place 8:30am to 10:00am EST. There is no cost to participate and you do not need to be registered for the AGU Fall Meeting to attend.
The Arctic Funders Meet & Greet will provide an informal opportunity for Arctic researchers to connect in-person with multiple agency program officers to gain insight into each organization’s Arctic research interests. The event has been planned using a “speed networking” format that will allow representatives from each funding organization to meet with small groups of up to 10 people for approximately 10-15 minutes at a time. Researchers will be invited to move between tables hosted by agency staff in a round-robin small group format. Small group conversations will explore the Arctic research interests of each funding organization, how proposals are evaluated for funding consideration, or provide an opportunity to address a handful of specific questions that would be appropriate for group discussion.
Participation will be limited to the first 50 registrants.
