Special Networking Event: Arctic Research Funders Meet & Greet

Time: 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Location: Cambria Hotel, Duke Ellington 1
The Arctic Funders Meet & Greet provides an informal opportunity for Arctic researchers to meet with multiple agency program officers to gain insight into each organization’s Arctic research interests. The event has been planned as an informal “speed networking” event. This format 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. The researchers attending the event 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.

This is an unticketed event and you do not need to be registered for AGU to attend. However, advance registration is required and participation will be limited to the first 50 registrants. Register here for this event.

If you have any questions, please contact Brit Myers at brit [at] arcus.org.
