The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) announces the next two webinar in their Public Webinar Series. These webinars, NSF Program Manager Chats: Arctic System Science and Social Sciences, will take place Wednesday, 24 April 2019 at 3:00 p.m. EDT (Social Sciences) and 4:00 p.m. EDT (System Science).
Between 2015 and 2018, the Arctic Sciences Section at the National Science Foundation (NSF) invested $76 million dollars in Arctic Social and System Sciences. With the arrival of new program officers to the Arctic Section, there are many new and continuing opportunities to fund Social and Systems Science research in the Arctic, including through the Arctic Social Science, Arctic System Science, and Arctic Observing Network Programs, as well as the Navigating the New Arctic Big Idea.
To clarify opportunities for funding and to provide a chance to answer questions and receive feedback from the research community, two NSF Program Officers – Colleen Strawhacker and Roberto Delgado – will lead two back-to-back webinars for the Arctic Social Science and Arctic System Science communities. The first webinar will focus on Arctic Social Science funding and answer questions from the research community regarding opportunities that exist within the Arctic section to fund social science-related research. The second webinar, immediately following, will focus on opportunities related to Arctic Systems Science Research.
