Deliverables

White paper on European polar data accessibility

White paper on European polar data accessibility, including proposals for capacity building methodology to interconnect the existing and upcoming polar research data systems and infrastructures and thus ensure data are made more widely available and in a timely manner

Data management recommendations for polar research data systems and infrastructures in Europe

Recommendations for data management for polar research data systems and infrastructures in Europe based on an analysis of the technical solutions presently in place that facilitate access to data and to ensure their protection, accuracy and long-term use and on an analysis of how a better discoverability and accessibility of the data can contribute to a better interoperability of the data provision mechanisms.

Survey of the existing polar research data systems and infrastructures

Report describing the existing polar research data systems and infrastructures, including their architectures, standards/good practice baselines, policies and scopes

Survey of polar commercial infrastructure

Survey of polar industry stakeholders to identify what commercial infrastructure could be made available to the European Polar Research Programme (e.g. tourist ships in Polar Regions ferrying scientists to/from research stations, commercial vessels deploying observational floats)

A Stakeholder map

A report that gives an overview of existing and potential stakeholders by sector (e.g. government policy, business, NGO’s, science and the public, particularly Arctic residents and indigenous people) that are likely to be end-users or influencers of polar research.

Roadmap for optimisation of monitoring and modelling programmes

A scheme for the optimisation of monitoring infrastructure use will be developed in this report together with WP3 and recommendations for an implementation will be given in this report.

Second progress report on science - stakeholder Interaction

Progress report on the science - stakeholder Interaction meetings including an assessment of the outcomes and recommendations for improvement

Survey of existing use of space assets by European polar operators

Report on theexisting use of space assets by European polar operators, including recommendations for improved coordination

Guidelines and mechanism for evaluating impact

Report on guidelines and mechanism to evaluate the impact of the communication and outreach strategy applied for interacting with stakeholders including recommendations for improvement

Gap analysis highlighting the technical and operational requirements of the European Polar Research Programme for satellite applications

Gap analysis highlighting the technical and operational requirements of the European Polar Research Programme for satellite applications and identifying opportunities for improved linkages to ESA and other space agencies

Second progress report on dissemination activities

Report decribing the EU-PolarNet dissemination activities carried out in the second period.

Integrated pan-European communication and engagement delivery plan

Report describing the communication and engagement plan that will be used by all project participants (individually or collectively) to facilitate and deliver public and stakeholder interaction activities.

Concordat for Public and Stakeholder Communication

Rules on how to communicate with the public and stakeholders based on guidelines developed and agreed in the consortium

First progress report on science - stakeholder Interaction

Progress report on the science - stakeholder Interaction meetings including an assessment of the outcomes and recommendations for improvement

Completed stakeholder consultations, report on the needs, gaps and opportunities produced

Report on the needs, gaps and opportunities of cooperation with Polar stakeholders including an analysis of strength and weaknesses of the applied methods.

Set of white papers addressing priority questions in polar research and targeting funding agencies and policy maker

Approximately six white papers that address the top research questions identified from the science-stakeholder dialogue. These topics would not represent all the research identified in an European Polar Research Programme but rather a set of core questions to tackle at the start of the programme. These Papers are intended to provide a state of the art for each issue, identify the challenges in addressing the issue, including consideration of infrastructure needs, and outline possible approaches that could be addressed through a European Polar Research Programme.

White paper on European polar infrastructure access and interoperability

White paper on European polar infrastructure access and interoperability, including an infrastructure implementation plan for the European Polar Research Programme

Third Progress report on dissemination activities

Report decribing the EU-PolarNet dissemination activities carried out in the third period.

First progress report on dissemination activities

Report decribing the EU-PolarNet dissemination activities carried out in the first period.

Inventory of existing monitoring and modelling programmes

Inventory report of existing monitoring activities, including the parameters monitored, frequency, sampling location, and associated data reporting and data handling arrangements.

Strategic analysis of the different monitoring and modelling programmes and related infrastructures

Report that includes a strategic analysis of the existing monitoring and modelling programmes, and the infrastructures used to deliver them based on D2.3. It will determine where additional support is needed to ensure the adequate collection of data from the polar regions.

Integrated European Polar Research Programme

Integrated European Polar Research Programme that describes the most important research questions and their societal relevance that need to be solved in the near future. The Research Programme will be co-designed with all relevant stakeholders and will give recommendations for research funders.

Minutes of the first Town Hall meeting

The MOSAiC Example: How to develop and fund a large-scale international initiative from a national bottom-up idea

The EU-PolarNet Task 1.3. Strengthen international cooperation and implement the Transatlantic Research Alliance has the objective to strengthen international cooperation in Polar Research. This new deliverable will contribute to this objective in showing how a large-scale and expensive international initiative, like the MOSAiC expedition, can be implemented and funded by an international consortium. The MOSAiC expedition serves as a best-practise example for other projects on how such international projects have to be set up and which support is needed to convert a national, bottom-up idea to an international large-scale project. In addition, this deliverable will also contribute to EU-PolarNet WP3 objectives by giving a best practise example on how an infrastructure, like PRV Polarstern, can be shared and jointly operated by an international consortium.

International Cooperation Strategy

Report that identifys the most important third-country partners for coopeartion and recommends an International Cooperation Strategy for European Polar Research

European Polar Infrastructure Catalogue

European Polar Infrastructure Catalogue incl. all types of polar infrastructures, facilities and large instruments (such as AUV´s and ROV´s) based on the model of the INTERACT Arctic station catalogue and with the agreement and participation of the INTERACT community. It will provide all necessary information on the capacities of European Arctic and Antarctic infrastructures to support science and their availability to international scientists.

Report on prioritised objectives in polar research

Report on Europe-relevant polar research questions as a basis for the stakeholder dialogue. The report collates the range of research questions emerging from the IASC, SCAR and national review processes and from discussion meetings within larger conference events organised be the project.
