Final Report

The Arctic in Rapid Transition (ART) network was created in October 2009 by early career scientists. ART is a multi-disciplinary network led by early career scientists from fields across polar and social sciences. Our aim is to synthesize existing knowledge about the Arctic, use this information to propose new initiatives, and promote the engagement of early career scientists in the development and execution of interdisciplinary polar science. ART has been endorsed by the Marine Working Group of IASC (formerly the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board) since its inception, and aims to retain close connections with the IASC and the MWG and its initiatives.



  • Draft of ART Strategic Plan 2018 - 2022.
  • Identification of short, mid-, and long-term activities to be led by ART.
  • Creation of operating procedures to achieve both scientific and professional objectives.
