Getting YOPP endorsement

The Steering Group of the Polar Prediction Project (PPP) provides endorsement for projects, programmes and initiatives that plan to contribute to the aims of the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP), as outlined in the YOPP Implementation Plan.

Projects seeking endorsement through YOPP may be either funded or in the process of seeking funding.

Endorsement will:

  • Increase the visibility of the research activities (e.g., listing on our website).
  • Provide an international framework for your research, which can help to leverage support and funding.
  • Contribute to improving the coordination between different activities.
  • Enhance networking and communication.

Endorsement will be considered if:

  • Your project addresses or contributes to the general YOPP objectives as outlined in the YOPP Implementation Plan.
  • Your project acknowledges the importance of close coordination of all planned YOPP activities.
  • Open data sharing is an important element of the project and the project data relevant to YOPP will be made available in alignment with the YOPP data strategy as outlined in the YOPP Summit report (ref. YOPP Data Legacy).
  • There is agreement that a summary of the planned activities of the endorsed projects/programmes/initiatives (including their logos, if applicable) will be made public through the website of the International Coordination Office (ICO) and other appropriate means.
  • The project researchers agree to support the work of the PPP-SERA subcommittee and will be available for interviews, discussions, survey or email communication should they be contacted by PPP-SERA.
  • There is agreement that points of contact have the obligation to inform the ICO about possible changes to the project.
