ArcticNet, in partnership with UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) and Mitacs, is 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.

Applicants must submit their completed proposal by 17:00 EST February 18, 2022.
