Federal Register Notice Announcement Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee

Event Dates

The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) invites comments on the next Arctic Research Plan.

IARPC is initiating development of the next Arctic Research Plan, as called for in the Arctic Research Policy Act (ARPA) of 1984 (15 U.S.C. 4108). The Plan aims to strengthen interagency communication, coordination, and collaboration of the 14 Federal agencies, departments and offices that make up IARPC. The Plan will address critical needs in Arctic research and identify those areas where research in the Arctic can be improved through interagency collaboration.

IARPC will begin developing the next 5-year Arctic Research Plan and wants to know what should be included. Your thoughts and ideas are valued and welcome.

A scoping Federal Register Notice (FRN) for the next Arctic Research Plan was published on 3 April 2020 and will be open for comments until 2 July 2020. The full FRN is available online (see link above).

Comments can be made via the Federal Register or email to IARPCPlan [at] nsf.gov

Input deadline extended to: 2 August 2020.
