Inuit Research Advisors

Past Projects (2004-2015)

Phase 2 (2008-2011)

During Phase 2 of ArcticNet, the Network’s 38 research projects focused on four main themes: marine systems; terrestrial systems; Inuit health, education and adaptation; and northern policy and development. These projects contributed to four Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRISes), each corresponding to one of the main political-physiographic-oceanographic regions of the coastal Canadian Arctic.
