The Arctic Horizons Steering Committee invites comments to the draft final report for Arctic Horizons. Comments will be given full consideration in the production of the final report, but will not be displayed publicly on the website.
Arctic Horizons, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Arctic Social Sciences Program (ASSP), was designed to assemble community input and recommendations on re-envisioning the mission, scope, future priorities, and resource needs of the Arctic social sciences research community.
The objectives of Arctic Horizons are to:
Organize, develop, and conduct five regional, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary workshops that integrated expertise from various fields, geographic locations, Indigenous communities, and stakeholder groups to develop a renewed vision of Arctic social sciences and identify key priorities and resource needs in the field for the future;
Design and support a broad, inclusive discussion of research priorities, scope, and mission in the Arctic social sciences;
Make recommendations to funders and policy makers who support or should support Arctic research; and
Produce a final report for the Arctic research community, or for Arctic research funders, that synthesizes relevant findings on the vision, mission, scope, and priorities of the Arctic social sciences community based on a sixth "synthesis" workshop.
Deadline for submitting comments: Saturday, 20 January 2018
