Research community encouraged to take part in survey as part of Arctic science portfolio review

The National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs (OPP) is seeking input from the arctic research community for its Arctic Science Section (ARC) Portfolio Review Committee, which is reviewing ARC’s successes as well as potential future changes in the scope and structure of its programs, and the balance of its funding.

In March 2018, a committee of 16 Arctic experts from a range of disciplines was assembled to conduct the review. The results of the survey will be critical to the deliberations of the Portfolio Review Committee.

ARC funds research within and across a wide range of disciplines, all affected by rapidly changing natural and social Arctic systems. Survey responses will be crucial to the future of ARC programs.

OPP is seeking frank, constructive and informative responses. Survey responses will be anonymous, as the results are identified only by a computer-generated ID number. Only aggregate findings will be included in the final report.

The survey should take roughly 1-15 minutes to complete.
