Summary

Arctic research spans disciplinary, institutional, national, and sector boundaries in pursuit of improved understanding and decision making for this vital region. In order to work effectively across these boundaries, it is important to focus on effective communication, coordination, and collaboration. This interactive session will explore what is being done, and what could be done, to bridge boundaries and advance research. For example, the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is an
international organization that connects across boundaries through the Sea Ice Prediction Network, Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH), and PolarTREC programs, among others. The session is designed to inform those engaged in research, decision-makers interested in a more effective research enterprise, and others interested in better understanding of the Arctic.
