Briefing meetings for ASM3 participants will take place throughout the planning process for ASM3. Because of the travel risks associated with the COVID-19 global pandemic, Briefing Meetings changed from in-person meetings for embassy staff in Tokyo or Reykjavík to online meetings for all ASM3 participants in June 2020 and will continue to be held online until further notice.
First Briefing Meeting: September 19, 2019. Tokyo, Japan
The First Briefing meeting in Tokyo included the release of the Concept Note and presentation to interested embassy staff on the date and an introduction to the concept of the Arctic Science Ministerial.
Second Briefing Meeting: 31 January 2020. Reykjavík, Iceland
The Second Briefing meeting in Reykjavík hosted by Minister Lilja Alfreðsdóttir included the plan for the ASM3 science deliverables process and a review of the ASM3 key dates leading up the Ministerial.
Third Briefing Meeting: 24 June 2020. Virtual Meeting hosted by Japan
