The North Atlantic-Arctic Planning Workshop organizing committee
announces that the draft North Atlantic-Arctic System Science Plan is
now available for public comment.
The international workshop, which convened in April 2014, provided a
forum to discuss the state of science in the North Atlantic-Arctic
system and begin planning the next phase of interdisciplinary research,
with an emphasis on mechanisms to facilitate international
collaboration. A meeting report summarizing key discussions that took
place at this workshop was published in the 2 September 2014 issue of
The outcome of this workshop will be a community-vetted science plan
that outlines a core vision for advancing the next phase of research on
the North Atlantic-Arctic system and strengthening international
collaborations within and between the European Union and North America.
The science plan will be finalized by early 2015, and will be used by
U.S. and international funding agencies for planning and coordination of
future North Atlantic-Arctic research opportunities.
Deadline for submitting comments: Friday, 17 October 2014.
