International Arctic Research: Analyzing Global Funding Trends. A Pilot Report
This pilot analysis is the result of an exploratory collaboration between the University of the Arctic (UArctic) Science & Research Analytics Task Force and Digital Science's international research teams. The aim was to assess the global funding landscape around Arctic-related research for the decade spanning 2006 to 2015 using the funding data from the Dimensions dataset, which includes information from over 200 funders on more than 2,500,000 projects with funding totalling $1 trillion+ (in US dollars). Special attention was given to analyzing trends in the countries of the Arctic Council - both members and observers - as well as their key funding agencies and institutional members of the UArctic. A significant effort was made to create and refine subject area categories and removing irrelevant grants that showed up in the searches, using Natural Language Processing technology.
This project is the first ever attempt to create a comprehensive view of global Arctic research funding using a dataset of such magnitude.
