The ICARP IV International Steering Committee (ISC) consists of appointees from all ICARP IV partner organisations and is tasked to oversee and coordinate the ICARP IV process from 2022 to 2026, identify and develop an overall process goal, theme and agenda, sub-theme research questions, and mechanisms for action and implementation of the ICARP IV outcomes.
The Research Priority Teams (RPTs) will work in 2024 and 2025 and consist of experts and knowledge holders nominated by all ICARP IV partner organisations and will be tasked to review and summarize the wider community input provided for their topic area through the open engagement phase in 2023 by defining knowledge gaps and research priorities. They will also develop possible science and educational plans as well as recommendations for implementation of these priorities incorporating the community input. More information on the work of the RPTs will be made available later in 2023.
The ICARP IV Conference Host Committee is formed by the host of the ICARP IV / ASSW 2025 in Boulder, Colorado, United States and will work closely with the ICARP IV International Steering Committee (ISC). The Conference Host Committee, to be advised by a US National Steering Committee, is committed to providing an outstanding venue for sharing scientific achievements, advancing collaboration, and planning for the future of Arctic research.
