IRIS reports

In the context of a changing Arctic, the research program of ArcticNet focuses on five main themes: marine systems, terrestrial systems, Inuit health, education and adaptation, northern policy and development and knowledge transfer in the North. To address the identified knowledge gaps and research challenges, the Network’s core research program comprises 41 research projects grouped into four Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS) that each underpin an Integrated Regional Impact Assessment (IRIA) to be re-edited at intervals of a few years.
