Inuit Research Advisors

Past Projects (2004-2015)

Phase 3 (2011-2015)

During Phase 3 of ArcticNet, the Network’s 39 research projects focused on five main themes: marine systems; terrestrial systems; Inuit health, education and adaptation; northern policy and development and knowledge transfer. 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.
