migrtationArctic port cities are witnessing increased maritime traffic; rural villages are facing displacement; and species are shifting their ranges north. These new mobilities present both challenges and opportunities for the North, but a lack of integration across research communities has hampered the advancement of our shared knowledge. With this new Research Coordination Network, we’re about to change that and invite and YOU to join our free network today.

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $500,000 grant to Georgetown University, in partnership with The Arctic Institute and the University of Alaska Anchorage, to establish a Research Coordination Network on Arctic Migrations.

Migration in Harmony: An Interdisciplinary Network on Littoral Species, Settlements, and Cultures on the Move (MiH-RCN) is a major international initiative, led by TAI Managing Director Dr. Victoria Herrmann, working to synthesize current research and build collaborative project teams to support a resilient, just, and sustainable Arctic in Motion.

To accomplish our critical goals, we need traditional knowledge holders, natural scientists, engineers, students, economists, social scientists, health professionals, cultural heritage workers, educators, and YOU.
