IARPC Collaborations Webinar Series: The Fulbright Arctic Initiative
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 25 August 2017
Where: Online: 9:00am AKDT, 1:00pm EDT
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) will host a webinar on the Fulbright Arctic Initiative. This webinar will be hosted via Zoom Video Conferencing and open to the public.
The Fulbright Arctic Initiative provides a platform for scholars from across the Arctic region to engage in collaborative thinking, analysis, problem-solving, and multi-disciplinary research. At its core, the Fulbright Arctic Initiative creates a network to stimulate international scientific collaboration on Arctic issues while increasing mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries. During the U.S. chairmanship of the Arctic Council (2015-2017), the Fulbright Arctic Initiative brought together 16 scholars from across the Arctic region.
Using a collaborative model to translate theory into practice, the scholars collectively addressed public policy research questions relevant to the Arctic nations' shared challenges in energy, water, health, and infrastructure.
During this webinar, co-lead scholars, Mike Sfraga and Ross Virginia, and other scholars will reflect on their experiences and the impacts of this variation on the Fulbright model.
