Meeting to Discuss a Potential NNA Community-Research Liaison Network
Postponed - new date and time TBD
The NNA-CO, together with the ARC-NAV project, is hosting a virtual open meet-up to discuss interests and ideas for a possible future network of community research liaisons. Such a 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 greater coordination and training for liaisons and community members interested in taking on these roles in the future.
The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss possible goals, opportunities, and challenges for such a network. The meeting will include established community liaisons and research assistants, project PIs, NNA-CO representatives, and representatives from Arctic communities and organizations that are interested in discussing and sharing ideas.
