The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) announces the availability of a new hub of webpages featuring information about each of Arctic research projects that have been supported through the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) program. Explore the site to learn more about NNA project activities, team members, and field site locations. The site also includes information about the newest round of 2020 NNA grantees.

The Navigating the New Arctic Projects Hub includes information on both the Arctic research projects funded through NSF's Dear Colleague letter solicitations in 2017 and 2018 as well as the Track 1 and Track 2 projects funded through the 2019 and 2020 NNA program solicitation. Track 1 supports research activities, while Track 2 is dedicated to planning grants to develop convergence research teams to tackle projects of larger scope in the future.

Navigating the New Arctic, one of NSF's 10 Big Ideas, supports fundamental convergence research across the social, natural, environmental, engineering, and computing and information sciences. Envisioned as at 5+ year agency-wide program, NNA will support the research and dissemination of new knowledge needed to inform the economy, security, and resilience of the Nation, the larger Arctic region, and the globe with respect to Arctic change.

Proposals for the next round of NNA award funding are due on 5 March 2021. View NSF’s current proposal solicitation here.
