The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is currently conducting a brief community survey to inform a potential new effort that will help individuals interested in interdisciplinary/ transdisciplinary Arctic research opportunities to connect more easily. The survey deadline is 31 July 2019.
After the December 2018 ARCUS Annual Members Meeting, a task force was convened to review community needs and challenges identified by Annual Meeting participants and to propose a handful of new ARCUS project ideas to help the community respond. One idea put forward by the task force was the development of a "community hub" dedicated to interdisciplinary research networking. The function of the hub would be to connect researchers, local experts, and other community members interested in developing interdisciplinary collaborative research initiatives to explore Arctic-related topics or themes. The proposed hub might include an online component, as well as other supporting activities and events hosted by ARCUS such as social or professional networking meet-ups, issue-focused workshops, or trainings designed to help expand the Arctic research community’s skill and capacity for collaborative and interdisciplinary research.
This goal of this survey is to seek additional input from potential hub participants to ensure the effort is well-aligned with user needs. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
All questions are optional and participants may remain anonymous. Two survey participants will be randomly selected to win a free Arctic ocean map umbrella.
