On behalf of the Belmont Forum, we invite you to a second researcher matching webinar on Tuesday, June 3rd, from 12pm-1:30pm Eastern Time that focuses on the breadth of end users and best practices for engagement of end users in the development and implementation of research projects. The webinar features a panel of experts representing a variety of end user perspectives and organizations. Webex details, including a link to international dialing options, are below. Slides will be shown via Webex and discussion will be handled via the international phone lines provided.

End users provide a required expertise on Belmont Forum proposals. The term "end user" encompasses a variety of organizations in citizen, indigenous, policy, government, academic, industry, advocacy, and managerial domains. The panel represents a cross-cut of end users and representative organizations active in Arctic natural and social science research.

A moderated panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session. Panelists for the June 3rd event include:

Christina Anderson, Willow Environmental LLC
Jim Gamble, Aleut International Association
Eva Kruemmel, Inuit Circumpolar Council
Gordon McBean, Centre for Environment and Sustainability, Western University / President-elect International Council for Science
Zach Stevenson, Northwest Arctic Borough
Aki Tonami, Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, University of Copenhagen

The webinar will be recorded and made available on the ArcticHub (http://www.arctichub.net) after the event under the Long-Term Observing Management Discussion Group.
