Arctic Researchers Networking Program

Corresponding to the joint statement of the 3rd Arctic Science Ministerial (ASM3) held in Tokyo in May 2021, which specifically emphasized the importance of strengthening capacity building, education, and networking, three new programs are implemented from FY2022 to accelerate the “capacity building and networking” and “collaboration with Arctic indigenous peoples’ organizations”.

Call for Application for ArCS II International Early Career Researchers Program

We will recruit a wide range of international early career researchers from both Arctic and non-Arctic countries who are engaged in the Arctic research, and employ or accept them at universities or research institutions in Japan. In this way, we aim to support the research of international early career researchers, stimulate mutual exchange between the Arctic researchers in Japan and international early career researchers, and strengthen the cooperative structure for international joint research.

Support for Early Career Participants in International Symposiums

We will support the participation and presentation of early career researchers from Japan and abroad, including those from Arctic local and indigenous communities, in international symposiums or other events held in Japan. This will contribute to strengthen exchanges among early career researchers and expand the Arctic research community.

Support for APECS Asia-Pacific (APECS-AP)

In relation to the Arctic research activities related to the APECS Asia-Pacific (APECS-AP) to be newly established in FY2022, we will conduct observation events using research vessels and other research infrastructures based on proposals from early career researchers. By doing so, we aim to strengthen capacity building of early career researchers in Japan and abroad, develop their careers, expand exchanges, and enhance Japan’s international presence.
