Kickoff Meeting

The Principal Investigators (PIs) of the Arctic Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (IERP) convened in Anchorage June 21-23 to initiate conversations about integrating their respective projects. Representatives of over twenty existing projects participated to explore opportunities for coordination and collaboration. Participants discussed the overall direction of the program and shared plans for field sampling. A steering committee will draft an Integrated Work Plan this summer that describes the breadth of the program in detail. The Integrated Work Plan will be available in Fall 2016 and may be cited in proposals to other agencies to describe how proposed new research would complement and leverage the Arctic IERP.
