issuing this Call for Proposals (CFP) that is partially funded by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) to initiate new projects that are relevant to the Network’s mandate and that address emerging science priorities that support a self-determined and sustainable Canadian North.

The CFP has been endorsed as a contribution to the United Nations (UN) Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 (“Ocean Decade”) in recognition of the role it will play in achieving the Ocean Decade’s vision. Marine proposals funded as part of the Call for Proposals (CFP) will be endorsed as Decade Actions and will become part of a highly visible, shared, global effort to advance ocean science by opening up opportunities to create new collaborations across disciplines, geographies and generations, and to establish access to new sources of support.

Growth of economic activities in the Arctic, compounded with the ongoing global climate change crisis, has created a suite of new research priorities and needs that must enhance understanding and support decision-making. ArcticNet projects address research gaps and needs identified by end-users, including those defined by Indigenous leaders and communities, national and territorial governments, scientists, and international declarations.

ArcticNet, will fund projects addressing priorities related to human health, natural, and social sciences in the Canadian North. Innovative, multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art and inclusive projects are solicited to address the challenges and opportunities created by the rapidly changing natural environment, and social and cultural systems. Applicants must outline how their work is addressing research gaps and needs identified by end-users.

ArcticNet aims to fund a balanced research portfolio that spans disciplines, geographies, and levels of impact from communities to the global context.

ArcticNet is committed to furthering equity, diversity and inclusion. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the NCE Equity Statement as well as ArcticNet’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy and incorporate EDI practices into their project, particularly in the composition of the project team.
