ANTPAS is undertaking a revision of its mission, aiming at targetting current needs from members and promoting new research topics.
The new strategic plan will be defined following the ANTPAS workshop which will take place at the SCAR OSC in Kuala Lumpur on the 27th August 2016.
This meeting has been preceded by a preparatory workshop at the International Conference on Permafrost in Potsdam on the 18th June 2016.
A survey aiming at characterizing the research groups involved in ANTPAS, their needs, as well as a SWOT analysis on ANTPAS is underway. Twelve research groups have already replied to the survey and the results will drive the design of the mission.
