Dr. Allen Pope, frá International Arctic Science Committe (IASC):
Helping Bridge National and Disciplinary Boundaries in Arctic Research
The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) is based in Akureyri, Iceland and is a non-governmental and international scientific organization which encourages and facilitates cooperation in all aspects of Arctic research, in all countries engaged in Arctic research, and in all areas of the Arctic region. With 23 member countries and 5 scientific working groups (Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human, and Terrestrial), IASC convenes a broad range of experts to achieve its scientific aims; these Working Groups are made of up experts from IASC’s member countries and provide IASC scientific advice and guidance. IASC’s recently-published 5-year strategic plan commits the organization to facilitating Arctic research cooperation, promoting engagement, and ensuring knowledge exchange. To translate research to policy, IASC also serves as an Observer on the Arctic Council, oversees the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks, and leads International Conference on Arctic Research Planning and other Arctic science assessments. In addition, IASC convenes the annual Arctic Science Summit Week – this conference initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time.
Any organization engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research may participate – and will be hosted in Akureyri in 2020! This talk will provide an introduction to IASC, how it works, and the scientific goals which IASC is currently focused on.
