The changing Canadian Arctic workshop

Study meeting

19 June 2019 (Wednesday)
Amba Hotel Charing Cross, London

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.

The workshop will be held at the Amba Hotel, The Strand, London WC2N 5HX. The workshop will start at 10:00, with tea and coffee available from 9:30. The workshop is expected to end no later than 16:00.
