Organizers invite the participation in a survey titled Project Management and Community Management in Polar Sciences: Challenges and Opportunities. This online survey will take approximately ten minutes and will remain open until Sunday, 18 March 2018.

Survey description:

With ongoing environmental changes in polar regions during the last couple of decades, the Arctic, Antarctic, and High Mountains (the "third pole") have become a focus for sustained research. Planning and implementation of research projects in the polar regions often involve many uncertainties, including large budgets, complicated logistics, unique risk management, and international collaboration. While these issues need to be considered by operating personnel, there is an increasing demand to employ professional project managers and community managers able to support their colleagues' operations in the polar regions.

In this regard, organizers have developed the following survey to learn about the demanded expertise and knowledge of project management and community management professionals as well as the most common challenges they face when implementing their projects.

Privacy Statement: Individual responses will remain confidential and results will only be shared and evaluated anonymously. No personal data will be made available without express permission.

Impact Statement: This survey is not expected to have any negative impacts for those who take it.

Survey deadline: Sunday, 18 March 2018
