The yearly regional workshops provide technical, scientific,
and ethical information to communities regarding their concerns
and priorities for research. They also assist in gathering
Native community research priorities and recommendations,
and developing regional research plans. The regional workshops
continue to bring NSF staff and funded researchers to workshops
so they can experience first hand the community process and
involvement, as well as to provide communities with information
about NSF programs, resources, and opportunities. The Northwest Alaska Regional Meeting, Southcentral Alaska Regional Meeting, Southeast Alaska Regional Meeting, and Yukon-Kuskokwim Alaska Regional Meeting report is now available.

ANSC Community Resource Directory
& Researcher's Database
In keeping with its mission to improve local participation
in the research process, one of the tasks of the ANSC is to
increase the access to and recognition of Native scientists,
researchers, consultants and Native knowledge specialists.
Toward that goal, the ANSC is responsible for developing a
Microsoft ACCESS statewide directory of these Native resources.
The directory is a community knowledge database of past participants
in regional meetings held in Alaska and who have agreed to
having their names and addresses posted on our website. The
database is still in a draft stage and will be refined and
to access ANSC's community knowledge Alaska Native Resource
to access ANSC's current Research Database of on-going
research in Alaska.
