The East-West Center and the Korea Maritime Institute are pleased to announce the 11th North Pacific Arctic Conference, Science, Technology and the Path Forward for a New Arctic, which will be held October 31-November 6, 2021, virtually on Zoom. 

 The innovative conference provides a venue for off-the-record engagement among policymakers/practitioners and scientists/analysts regarding Arctic issues of mutual interest to leading North Pacific Arctic states (Canada, Russia and the United States) and non-Arctic States (China, Japan, and South Korea).  Webpage:

An important goal of NPAC is to attract and involve the next generation of policy, science, and practice leaders:  explicitly, to solicit the contributions of knowledgeable early to mid-career individuals who will become leaders in addressing the Arctic science and policy issues emerging in global affairs. 

 In support of this goal, funds are available to support the participation of a small number of competitive Early-Career Arctic researchers, policymakers, and practitioners as NPAC 2021 Fellows.

Those chosen this year will be the fourth cohort of NPAC Fellows.  They will join a group of world-class international researchers and policymakers in addressing contemporary issues affecting the Arctic.
