Who We Are
The Navigating the New Arctic Community Office (NNA-CO) builds awareness, partnerships, opportunities, and resources for collaboration and equitable knowledge generation within, between, and beyond the research projects funded by the National Science Foundation’s NNA Initiative. The office builds capacity in early career researchers and provides unique opportunities to inspire and engage a wide audience toward a more holistic understanding of the Arctic—its natural environment, built environment, and diverse cultures and communities.
Call for Comment: Discussing a Potential NNA Community-Research Liaison Network
The NNA-CO is open to comments on a potential network to support community liaisons. The network could facilitate greater community-driven research with liaisons in leadership roles, create new opportunities for comparative work, and expand shared research infrastructure. The network could provide opportunities for shared networking and training for liaisons and community members interested in taking on these roles in the future.Submit Comment
