Registration form:

NERC is convening a multidisciplinary workshop on behalf of the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and the Economic & Social Research Council, focused on the changing Canadian Arctic in London on Wednesday 19 June 2019, and would like to invite applications to attend.

There is increasing recognition that interlinked processes require multidisciplinary responses, across both the natural system and across environmental, social, economic, engineering and cultural research disciplines. This workshop will bring together the Arctic research community to consider multidisciplinary research to enable indigenous communities to adapt to environmental change in the Arctic, and the wider socio-economic, cultural and engineering impacts of climate change.

The programme is seeking to engage researchers from a broad range of disciplines. Researchers from environmental, social and economic sciences, arts and humanities, engineering and physical sciences disciplines, and beyond, are encouraged to apply.

You must complete the online registration form if you wish to attend the workshop. The deadline to register is 16:00 on 7 June 2019.

The workshop venue will hold up to 80 people. If demand exceeds venue capacity, workshop attendees will be selected using information provided on the registration form to ensure an appropriate balance of expertise and institutional representation. Applicants will be advised on whether or not they have been selected to attend by Wednesday 12 June 2019.

Further details of the workshop agenda will be circulated to attendees prior to the meeting.

Please note: The cost of attending the workshop will be the responsibility of the attendee.
