  "abstract": "<p>Presentation held at the\u00a0</p>\n\n<p>Arctic Workshop of the Transatlantic Ocean Research Alliance<br>\n23-24 February 2017<br>\nVenue: Rue du Champ de Mars, 21 \u2013 B-1050 Brussels (BE)<br>\nSynopsys<br>\nRapid Arctic changes are impacting its own fragile ecosystem and society, and are also, on a broader<br>\nscale, influencing global changes to the climate system and to sea level. Arctic research and<br>\nobservation are essential to monitor and predict the evolution of these changes.<br>\nThe Arctic, through its interplay with the Atlantic, is part of the EU-US-Canada Transatlantic Ocean<br>\nResearch Alliance launched by the trilateral Galway declaration in May 2013. The Alliance triggered<br>\nthe decision to invest in a broad package of Arctic research activities in Work Programme 2016-17 of<br>\nHorizon 2020. Three large research projects have already been selected and will begin in late 2016.<br>\nIn this occasion, the European Commission has decided to organise an Arctic Workshop under the<br>\nTransatlantic Ocean Research Alliance flagship to build on this positive momentum and to further the<br>\nscientific partnerships on the Arctic between the EU, the US and Canada.<br>\nMoreover, the Arctic Workshop will also contribute to establishment of the strategies and<br>\ninternational efforts to work on the deliverables identified at the recent White House Arctic Science<br>\nMinisterial meeting on 28th September 2016. In particular, the discussion will focus on the building<br>\nof an integrated Arctic observing system and to advance towards sustained Arctic observations.<br>\nThe Arctic Workshop will take place in Brussels on 23-24 February 2016.<br>\nThe mornings will be dedicated to show-case of the projects and initiatives in place in Europe, United<br>\nStates and Canada. The afternoon of the first day we will ask the participants to split in two groups to<br>\ndiscuss on<br>\n\u2022 \"Status of data availability and strategies to build an integrated data access platform \"and;<br>\n\u2022 \"Key Arctic Change variables for an operational/science integrated Arctic observing system\".<br>\nThe objective of the afternoon discussion will be to take stock of the outcomes of the projects and<br>\ninitiatives which are more advanced in their implementation and to confront the different<br>\napproaches to build synergies, avoid double efforts and identify eventual gaps. The feedback form<br>\nthese discussion sessions will contribute to the identification of future concrete actions for<br>\ncollaboration addressing the priorities set out in the context of the Transatlantic Ocean Research<br>\nAlliance and, more broadly, the White House Arctic Science Ministerial.<br>\nThe afternoon of the second day will focus on the identification of strategies and mechanisms to<br>\nfacilitate international Arctic science cooperation. The objective will be to contribute to the drafting<br>\nof a white paper to be presented, and discussed, in a dedicated session at the next ASSW in Prague.</p>",
