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