This panel includes representatives of selected key stakeholder groups and experts who will support INTAROS throughout its duration.
Some members of the External Advisory Board were involved in the development of the Engagement Strategy, and they continue to support the project to efficiently engage with stakeholders, attract more users, identify ways to improve usage of data and information from society to science and vice-versa. The panel will also be invited to contribute to the development of the roadmap for the future sustainable Arctic Observing System.
