The breakout session "ICARP IV – Deciding Arctic Research Priorities for the Next Decade" will be held on 20 October at 09.40-11:05 during Arctic Circle Assembly 2023.
From 2022 to 2026, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) in cooperation with many partners worldwide, is organizing the decadal International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP).
Throughout 2023 and into 2024, community engagement into the ICARP IV process is encouraged with the goal of the engagement process being truly inclusive, diverse, and engaging to ensure that the scientific priorities for the next decade are firmly grounded on the advice and needs of Arctic scientists and science organisations, Indigenous peoples and Arctic residents, stakeholders, and rights-holders. Individuals of all career stages, groups, networks, institutions and organisations are encouraged to contribute to this ICARP IV engagement process. This scientific session builds on the last year’ discussion (ACA2022) and presents the progress and first outcomes of the ICARP IV engagement process. The first research questions and priorities will be publicly announced, presented to the attendees by the group leaders, and discussed.
