In our Polar and Alpine Community News we feature news from the many partners that APECS is working with, as well as other news from a variety of sources related to research in the Arctic, Antarctic and Alpine regions as well as the wider Cryosphere. Many thanks to APECS members and the wider Polar research community for contributing to this shared resources!
We keep only the news of the last 3 months on this page. Older news can be accessed in our Polar and Alpine News Archive.
The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) is performing several consultations as part of its new WCRP implementation plan, and the input from its core projects is essential; as CliC, the Climate & Cryosphere Project, we have been requested to provide nominees to be part of the task teams that will develop the proposed Lighthouse Activities (LHA) science plans. LHA are intended to be:
--Major experiments, high-visibility projects, infrastructure building blocks
--Activities that truly bring together the capabilities (scientific, technical, infrastructure) from across the whole of WCRP and with partners.

The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is beginning our yearly effort to gather information on relevant research activities that have occurred over the last fiscal year. We hope this provides you an opportunity to share the work you have been doing during FY2020 with the wider research community. We welcome all to contribute information on recent work that is relevant to the Arctic Research Plan. You can identify where your work fits in by finding the relevant research goal (e.g., Sea Ice, Coastal Resilience, Permafrost etc.) and then narrowing down to the specific activity (Performance Element) your work responds to.Read more ...
The Arctic Sciences Section in the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) is now accepting proposals for Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIGs) to conduct dissertation-level research about and related to the Arctic region. The Programs that are currently accepting DDRIG proposals are the Arctic Social Sciences (ASSP), Arctic System Science (ARCSS), and Arctic Observing Network (AON) Programs.Read more ...

Call for submission – Vox Pop Inclusion in Northern Research
Our community of Northern research is diverse: it includes people from the North and the South, involves workers and scientists from communities, government and academia as well as stakeholders and knowledge-holders from across the Arctic Circle. Many different journeys led our members to where they are today, contributing to the richness of our community.
