Activity Description:

The Fourth International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) is an international effort to develop Arctic research priorities and ideas for their implementation for the coming decade. This involves an inclusive engagement process spearheaded by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), collecting input from all Arctic stakeholders and interested parties. An important group in this process are early-to-mid-career researchers. IASC FOX (IASC Fellows’ Ongoing X-change) is a network of early-to-mid-career researchers with a strong connection to the work and goals of IASC. Their scientific knowledge as well as their detailed understanding of the IASC Working Groups and the international relations of IASC, makes the IASC FOX members a valuable resource for the ICARP IV engagement process. To coordinate the efforts of the IASC FOX members and bolster the work of the ICARP IV research priority teams a workshop will be organized in late spring/early summer 2024 at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge, UK. The workshop has the goal to discuss and focus the ideas of the IASC FOX members for research priorities and their implementation within the different topic areas of ICARP IV. The results will be summarized in the form of a report, which will be communally developed at the workshop and submitted to the ICARP IV resources. The workshop will not only benefit the development of the research priorities for the coming decade but will also strengthen and ensure the continued connection of IASC FOX members with IASC and the outcomes of ICARP IV. This is an important aspect, considering that the IASC FOX generation will likely be those researchers promoting and conducting the work identified as part of ICARP IV.
