Evaluering af The Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON)


Kære alle

I Styrelsen for Forskning og Innovation har vi modtaget nedenstående henvendelse fra Helen Joseph, der er formand for en evalueringskomite, der skal forestå en evaluering af The Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON).

Hvis I har erfaring med SAON og ønsker at bidrage til evalueringen er muligheden her, jf. nedenstående link.

Fristen er 1. juni 2016. På forhånd tak.



The Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON) is an initiative of the Arctic Council together with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The purpose of SAON is to support and strengthen the development and multinational engagement for sustained and coordinated pan-Arctic observing and data sharing systems that serve societal needs, particularly related to environmental, social, economic and cultural issues.

The SAON Board has established an External Review Committee to conduct an external review of SAON. The plan for the review states that the Committee should organise a survey among Arctic stakeholders. The outcomes of the survey will be used to inform the External Review Committee’s deliberations and be part of the report that the External Review Committee delivers to the SAON Board by 1st September 2016. There is more information about the External Review Committee and timelines for the work here.

I am writing to ask for your contribution to the survey.

Please forward this information to people in your network who can help us better understand how SAON has performed in the past and how it should be developed for the future.

The survey has 25 questions and will take 10-15 minutes to fill in. We should kindly ask you to complete the survey by 1st June.
