The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) will be hosting a special networking activity for Arctic researchers to meet with staff from a number of Arctic research funding agencies on Friday, 14 December 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time at the Cambria Hotel (899 O Street NW), Duke Ellington Room 1, in Washington, D.C.

The Arctic Funders and Greet will provide an informal opportunity for Arctic researchers to connect in-person with multiple agency program officers to gain insight into each organization’s Arctic research interests. The event has been planned using a “speed networking” format that will allow representatives from each funding organization to meet with small groups of up to 10 people for approximately 10-15 minutes at a time. Researchers will be invited to move between tables hosted by agency staff in a round-robin small-group format.

Small group conversations will explore the Arctic research interests of each funding organization, how proposals are evaluated for funding consideration, or provide an opportunity to address a handful of specific questions that would be appropriate for group discussion.

There is no cost to participate and you do not need to be registered for the American Geophysical Union 2018 Fall Meeting to attend this event.

Participation will be limited to the first 50 registrants.
