Organizers invite attendance at their next installment of the Greenland Dialogues. This event, titled Greenland-U.S. Research Cooperation: Exploring a New Model for Research in Greenland, will convene 9 September 2019 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. A webcast will also be available for this event.

Greenland's environment is rapidly changing as sea ice melts and glaciers crumble, and the effects of climate change are plain to see. While this has attracted scientists from around the globe for decades, Greenlandic society has seen few direct benefits of this increasing focus. Greenlandic and American research institutions now seek stronger bilateral relations that leverage the resources and expertise of researchers, and capacity building and better inclusion of stakeholders and community members. Collaboration between Greenland and the U.S. can yield better research, consider more diverse perspectives, articulate the benefits of research to Greenlandic society, and train the next generation in this framework.

This program will also discuss the findings and recommendations of a National Science Foundation workshop that explored ways to strengthen and enhance research collaborations between the U.S. and Greenland.
