GUIRR Webinar: Navigating the New Arctic
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 20 February 2020
Where: Online: 9:00-10:00 a.m. AKST, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST
The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will hold a webinar on the National Science Foundation's Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) program. Conceived as one of NSF's 10 Big Ideas in 2016, Navigating the New Arctic embodies the Foundation's forward-looking response to profound challenges and opportunities presented by warming Arctic temperatures and wide-scale changes to natural, social, economic, and political systems of the Arctic and across the globe. NNA seeks innovations in fundamental convergence research across the social, natural, environmental, and computing and information sciences, and engineering that address the interactions or connections between natural and built environments and social systems, and how these connections inform our understanding of Arctic change and its local and global effects. NNA promotes initiatives that empower new research communities, diversify the next generation of Arctic researchers, integrate the co-production of knowledge, and engage partnerships, particularly among international stakeholders.
Please join GUIRR for a webinar with Irina Dolinskaya and Colleen Strawhacker, Program Directors at NSF, to discuss the program and its approach to addressing convergent scientific challenges in the Arctic.
