The funding is generously provided by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC).

T-MOSAiC (Terrestrial Multidisciplinary distributed Observatories for the Study of Arctic Connections) is an IASC pan-Arctic, land-based program that would extend the activities that are currently in advanced planning for the IASC flagship program MOSAiC: ‚The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate“. MOSAiC is a multinational year-round study (2019-2020) of the central Arctic Ocean to measure the coupling between atmosphere, sea ice, ocean and ecosystem processes.

The 3rd T-MOSAiC workshop will be divided into a closed session for the steering committee (8:00 - 12:00) and an open meeting in which all are welcome (13:00 - 17:00). The selected travel support recipients would be expected to attend the entire day. All travel support recipients have to be registered for the ArcticNet ASM meeting .

Applicants should be:

  • Early career researchers up to 5 years past PhD
  • Affiliated with an institution in an IASC member country
  • Have not received IASC travel support in the 18 months before December 2018
  • Have a research background that fits with one of the IASC working groups

To apply for the travel support please fill out this application form:  Application deadline for the travel support will be on 5 October 2018. 

Please note, that there will also be T-MOSAiC Workshop at the upcoming Arctic Science Summit Week 2019 (22 - 30 May 2019, Arkhangelsk, Russia) for which travel support will be announced in early 2019. It is only possible to receive travel support for either the workshop in Ottawa or in Arkhangelsk but not both.

The review and selection process of travel support recipients is organized by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) in close cooperation with T-MOSAiC.
