ARCTIConnexion is run by graduate students at the Université du Québec à Rimouski, is built on the experience and engagement of student-researchers and professionals. The team deals with natural science and/or social science issues in the Arctic and Subarctic regions, on Inuit homeland. Many of their projects are community-based and allow unique opportunities for research collaboration between students, researchers and Canadian Arctic communities.
Inuit Qaujisarvingat, Inuit Knowledge Center. The goal of the newly established Inuit Qaujisarvingat (kow-yee-sar-ving-at), Inuit Knowledge Centre, is to bridge the gap between Inuit knowledge and western science and build capacity among Inuit to respond to global interests in Arctic issues. Inuit Qaujisarvingat is based at Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami headquarters in Ottawa.
Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic (ELOKA) facilitates the collection, preservation, exchange, and use of local observations and knowledge of the Arctic. ELOKA provides data management and user support, and fosters collaboration between resident Arctic experts and visiting researchers. By working together, Arctic residents and researchers can make significant contributions to understanding the Arctic and recent changes. The program is run through the National Snow and Ice Data Center Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) University of Colorado.
Local Environmental Observers Network (LEO) run by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is a group of tribal professionals who apply traditional knowledge, western science and technology to document unusual plants and wildlife, extreme weather, erosion, flooding, droughts, wildfire and other events that can threaten food security, water security and community health.
Bridging Early Career Researchers and Indigenous Peoples in Nordic Countries is an APECS-Norden 14-month research project that will leverage the research, education and outreach experience of the APECS network to identify ways to enhance engagement between Early Career Researchers and Indigenous peoples in Nordic regions.
Bering Sea Sub-Network (BSSN) brings together researchers and local residents in co-production of science, which is place-based and relevant to the societal needs in Alaska and eastern Russia.rings together researchers and local residents in co-production of science, which is place-based and relevant to the societal needs in Alaska and eastern Russia.
