Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


iasc webThe International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) invites proposals for cross-cutting Arctic activities to be considered for IASC funding in 2020. IASC activities connect Arctic scientists across national and disciplinary boundaries, with funding up to 15,000 Euro.

IASC scientists are organized into five working groups: Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social and Human, and Terrestrial. Proposals can be limited to one IASC Working Group, relevant to all five, or anything in between. Note: Working Groups must allocate at least 40% of their budget in cooperation with other Working Groups.

All proposals will be fully discussed and considered at the Working Group meetings during the Arctic Science Summit Week 2020 that will convene 27 March — 2 April 2020 in Akureyri, Iceland.

When preparing proposals, please consider how the activity relates to the Working Group scientific priorities and the IASC Strategic Plan.

Please note that while proposals can be submitted by anybody, all proposals should be discussed with Working Group leadership/membership before submission. Cross-cutting proposals should engage all relevant collaborators early in the development phase.

Proposal Submission Deadline: Sunday, 1 March 2020.
