ArcticNet

The ArcticNet Network of Centres of Excellence of Canada is honored and proud to manage the Arctic Inspiration Prize. The Prize is directly aligned with the Network's vision of a future where knowledge exchange, monitoring, modeling and capacity building will have enabled scientists, Northerners and decision makers to jointly attenuate the negative impacts and maximize the positive outcomes of the transformation of the Canadian Arctic.

The overall governance of the network is managed by a multi-stakeholder Board of Directors composed of an equal representation of senior officials from Inuit organizations, government, the private sector and academia.

As one of the world's largest national Arctic research networks, ArcticNet brings together scientists and other experts in the natural, human health and social sciences with their partners in Inuit organizations, northern communities, governments and the private sector to help Canadians face the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change and modernization in the Arctic. Over 150 ArcticNet researchers and 700 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates and technicians from 30 Canadian universities and 20 federal and provincial departments and agencies collaborate on over 36 research projects with more than 100 partner organizations from 15 countries.

The ArcticNet Administrative Centre is hosted at Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada. More information about ArcticNet can be found at: www.arcticnet.ulaval.ca.
