Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

IARPC LogoThe Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) supports communication and collaboration across all areas of Arctic research. In addition to collaboration teams that implement the Arctic Research Plan, we have a number of self-forming teams. These teams are spaces for IARPC Collaborations members to organize around topics they find important. We at IARPC encourage all Arctic researchers and community members to join IARPC Collaborations and check out our self-forming teams.
  • Arctic Domain Awareness Center Network
  • Arctic STEM Education Working Group
  • Diversity & Inclusion Working Group
  • Early Career Forum
  • International Cooperative Engagement Program for Polar Research (ICE-PPR)
  • Physical Oceanography Self-Formed Team
  • Polar Technology Community
  • Science Communication Forum
  • U.S. Forum for the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC)
If you have an idea for a self-forming team or have questions about existing ones, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I am always happy to work with the Arctic research community to design a space for you.
