Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The U.S. National Science Foundation Arctic Natural Sciences is funding a Greenland Data Workshop. The workshop will be held October 5-6, 2022 both in-person at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO and online/virtually.

With the swift expansion of Greenland-focused research, the National Science Foundation and other funders have supported the development of key data, tools, and programs. As these projects mature, coordination and community discussion is required to ensure that projects are working together, that gaps in data, tools, and workflows are identified, and that there is a shared vision for future development that can support efficient and effective research across a broadening group of participants.

Application deadline: August 1, 2022

The workshop will focus primarily on data, tools, and workflows necessary to improve organization and insight within the natural sciences and ensure this community is well-prepared to contribute within broad models of co-production and interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, or convergent research. We hope that the workshop is one activity within a larger continuum that should include data use, data sovereignty, and co-production discussions hosted in Greenland.

Workshop attendees will work together to:

  • Map the ecosystem of Greenland natural science data archives, tools, and workflows;
  • Identify and prioritize gaps in the data and tool ecosystem;
  • Brainstorm routes to close gaps in the data to insight system;
  • Bring judgment and prioritization to identified routes.

Complimentary agendas will accommodate in-person and virtual participation.
