The NSF Arctic Observing Network (AON) announces the next thematic webinar in the series on Long-Term Observing Management and Governance. This event will focus on Award Structure and Management, and will be an interactive panel discussion held on Tuesday, 18 March 2014 at 1:30 p.m. EDT. This event has been rescheduled from February.

The webinar will be held via WebEx. The panel will be moderated by KnowInnovation and will include a question and answer session. Panelists will be providing perspectives on a wide range of approaches to funding for observations, and will address questions such as:

  • How might long-term observing systems be managed?
  • What are the benefits of utilizing different management structures?
  • Should critical path planning be used to advance observing efforts?
  • Are there cost savings from non-traditional methods, such as crowdsourcing?
  • What are the realities of multi-agency funding of observations?
  • Should interdependent infrastructure be encouraged to reduce redundancy and answer more integrated questions?
