EU-PolarNet 2 Workshop: Recommendations towards an Integrated Polar Observing System

EU-PolarNet 2 will arrange an on-line workshop on 7th June 2022 at 13-18 CEST, aiming to facilitate better alignment of observing system efforts in the Arctic and Antarctic, and to create actionable policy-level recommendations to accelerate the development of an integrated polar observing system.

Event information





Add event to calendar

The on-line registration to the workshop is open until 1st June 2022.

The workshop consists of inspiring highlight presentations by various Arctic, Antarctic and Polar organizations, networks and projects across approaches, scales, domains and services, and of in-depth breakout sessions to discuss and co-design the recommendations together with the workshop participants.

EU-PolarNet 2 is a network to co-develop and advance the European polar research actions and to give evidence-based advice to policy making processes. The integrated polar observing system would, once operational, provide a coordinated “system of systems” for continuous and standardized data and societally relevant information on the state of the polar regions.

The polar research, observing and data communities, including both Arctic and Antarctic organizations, projects, institutions and stakeholders working with observing systems at various domains and scales, are warmly welcome to participate in the workshop and have their voices heard in co-designing the recommendations.

The recommendations resulting from the workshop will feed into a white paper published in 2023 and distributed to a wide range of policymakers and funding bodies. The workshop participants will have a possibility to join a task force preparing the white paper where the recommendations will be included.

Participation to the workshop is free of charge. The workshop participants will receive preliminary materials, together with the link to join the on-line workshop, via e-mail after the registration closes.

Register to the workshop by 1st June by filling in the on-line registration form.
