Organizers are inviting researchers of all disciplines, people from local and Indigenous Arctic communities, policymakers, funders of research, and all other stakeholders to contribute towards the Horizon Scan by participating in an secure online survey, which asks respondents to name one or more priorities for Arctic research in the next decade. Organizers welcome submissions about local-scale as well as large-scale issues; well-known topics and under-appreciated ones; urgent concerns as well as more distant ones; and topics concerning the environment, ecosystems, geology, industry, politics, language, culture, weather, and climate.

Workshop organizers will condense the online submissions into a categorized set of research priorities for the next decade. Based in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the workshop will invite participation from researchers, Arctic stakeholders, and Indigenous rights holders

The Horizon Scan will build towards a peer-reviewed written report summarizing the findings of the workshop and online survey. This will be an agenda-setting document useful to researchers, funders of research, policymakers, and other Arctic stakeholders and rightsholders. Through participation in the Horizon Scan, organizers also hope that new cross-disciplinary connections and partnerships will be made, and that different forms of knowledge (e.g., scientific and traditional) will be brought together.

Deadline to submit input: 23 August 2022
