The Arctic Research Programme has been established through generous funding by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as its results can provide strategic and societally relevant information for policymakers, scientists and the general public.
Our stakeholders include those who have directly funded the programme or its affiliated projects and those who can utilise the outcomes. Some, like the UK Met Office, are both stakeholders utilising the improved prediction and regional modelling emerging from ARP but also contributing as research organisations contributing modelling expertise to several of the projects in the programme.
Similarly the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is a significant beneficiary from ARP activities but has also invested in the research programme deriving outcomes that inform its work on climate change policy and extends project capabilities to address the ARP objectives.
We will endeavour to interact with stakeholders throughout the life of the programme and will publish information on these activities on this site. If you are interested in our work with stakeholders contact us via the ARP email address.
