The Institute of the North works on an array of critical issues in the Arctic, focused on the region's economic prosperity and resilient communities. Our legacy work has addressed Arctic infrastructure development – including energy, aviation, telecommunications, and marine shipping. Much of that work is based on establishing and sustaining cross-border relationships.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
The Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) is an international effort to focus on enhancing collaboration and coordination among arctic marine and sea ice modelers, theoreticians and observationalists based on a set of activities starting from generating hypotheses, to planning research included both observations and modeling, and to finalizing analyses synthesizing major results from the field studies and coordinated numerical experiments.
The 2015 FAMOS School and Meeting #4 will be held at the Cape Codder Resort and Spa, (http://www.capecodderresort.com) Hyannis, Cape Cod, MA, November 3-6, 2015. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
