The annual High North Dialogue conference gathers experts and stakeholders from a wide range of sectors and has a strong focus on business development and economic growth in the High North. The fact that the conference provides a platform to interact with young academics and professionals with an interest in the Arctic is one aspect that past participants have highlighted as especially useful. The conference coincides with week-long Master and PhD courses that gather more than 120 graduate students from Norway, Russia, China, and many other countries.
Dear Colleague Letter, National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Engineering Directorate, in collaboration with the Biological Sciences, Computer and Information Science and Engineering, and Geosciences directorates, has issued a "Dear Colleague" Letter (DCL), Signals in the Soil (SitS), to encourage submission of Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals for early-stage, high-risk, high-reward research on technologies, models, and methods to better understand dynamic soil processes, including interactions of the macro- and microbiomes with soil nutrients, the rhizosphere, and various abiotic
The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.

The workshop will address the natural and anthropogenic drivers of Arctic change. This will include a system-wide perspective on the changing Arctic system, the influence of local and remote controls, and the importance of coupled interactions. A primary goal of the workshop is to provide new insights on how to better integrate observing and modeling approaches to enhance understanding of Arctic system change. The meeting will include participants from the atmospheric, terrestrial, and marine science communities.

The Arctic is changing at an accelerated rate due to climate change and increased anthropogenic activity. Given the rate of change, never has it been more important to work toward a holistic understanding of the Arctic’s interconnecting systems. A co-production of knowledge framework will provide the holistic view and comprehension needed to inform effective and adaptive policies and practices. We underscore the role and value of different knowledge systems with different methodologies and the need for collaborative approaches in identifying research questions.
The dates of the 6th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management are 30 July - 3 August 2018. It will take place at Penn State, University Park, Pennsylvania.
SCRiM’s annual summer school is designed to foster opportunities for collaboration between scholars and practitioners while providing a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.
The purpose of this 5th International Workshop on Creation, Dissemination and Research on the North and the Arctic is to bring together artists, writers, curators, organizers of cultural events, professors, researchers, and graduate students to enable them to share their expertise, by presenting one of their projects related to the North and the Arctic.
