Presentation: pdf Agenda Item 4.3.3 (1.94 MB)
Authors: Louise Newman (Executive Officer), Anna Wåhlin (Phys Sciences Co-Chair), Oscar Schofield (Bio Sciences Co-Chair), Sebastiaan Swart (Phys Sciences Vice Chair), Andrew Constable (Bio Sciences Vice Chair)
Important Issues or Factors:
Recommendations/Actions and Justification: Jointly with SCOR, SCAR has provided financial support for the annual SSC meeting since 2011. This support is greatly appreciated by SOOS and is imperative to ensure participation of all international SSC members. SOOS requests that the SCAR support is continued for the 2017 SSC meeting (location TBA, likely EU). SOOS also invites the SCAR Executive Director to attend the 2017 meeting.
Budget Implications: SOOS requests 10,000 USD to support SSC members to attend the 2017 SSC meeting. SCAR is asked to support the SCAR Director to attend out of the central SCAR budget, not the 10,000 USD requested for SSC participation.
