NERC convened this 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.

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 brought 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, were encouraged to attend.

The cost of attending the workshop was the responsibility of the attendee.
