    NPA partnering with Science Community of Practice and Yukon College on lecture series profiling Northern and Indigenous-led research

    Science Community of Practice

    We are pleased to announce that throughout Fall 2018, NPA is partnering with Yukon-based Science Community of Practice (SCOPe) and Yukon College to host a lecture series which will profile Northern and Indigenous-led research projects and research partnerships. This series follows our July 2018 magazine Redefining the Research Landscape.

    The series will feature a variety of speakers engaged in and leading Northern research, who will share their experiences and answer questions of what contemporary Northern-led research looks like. The series will highlight the leading work being done by Indigenous nations and Northern-based organizations to ensure their research priorities are addressed. It will also demonstrate the diversity of Northern research and development projects taking place in areas such as health, energy, food security, water governance, etc.

    The Fall lecture series will offer an opportunity to learn about ongoing research in the region and spark a conversation about how to further support and build upon northern research.

    The first event in the series is called Stay North, young researcher: Exploring trends in northern research capacity, and will feature the research and reflections of two Yukon-based PhD students, Sam Darling and Alison Perrin.

    When: September 20, 2018 from 12:00-1:00 PM (PST)
