SCAR EXCOM 2019 Paper 22: CBET report

Capacity Building, Education and Training (CBET) Report

Agenda Item: 12
Person Responsible: M. Ravichandran

Report Authors: M. Ravichandran and Eoghan Griffin


The CBET Committee continues to work on building capacity across all of SCAR activities. The Committee played a key role in the reconstitution of the Visiting Professor scheme as the Visiting Scholar scheme, resulting in dramatic increases in applications and representation.

Significant additional funding has been secured for the Fellowship and Visiting Scholar schemes in 2019, both from SCAR member countries and through a new partnership with the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).

In partnership with Polar Educators International (PEI) and others, the Committee is helping update the Polar Resource Book published as part of the International Polar Year (IPY).

The Tinker Foundation has decided to close the Tinker-Muse Prize after the tenth award, presented in 2018.
