Sharing your thoughts on the Future of Science in the Falkland Islands

The Falkland Island Government and SAERI are currently assessing the infrastructure and services required to fully support increased scientific and research activities both in the Falkland Islands and the wider South Atlantic region.  We are interested in your expectations and requirements for infrastructure, services and logistics, as well as gaining a better understanding of the scientific research areas that SAERI could support.  Our aim is to encourage more, and wider, use of the Falkland Islands as a base of operations and staging ground for research within this region.

Whether you are curious to see how you might be able to conduct your research on the Falkland Islands and in the wider South Atlantic or have an extensive track record of working on or around region, your insights into how this region could be made more accessible to scientists will provide valuable information about facilities that would support your work.   We are interested in hearing your experiences or perceptions of working in the Falkland Islands, including challenges, limitations and advantages, to help us understand the attraction of the region within your specific discipline.  Your feedback will allow us to plan for the future creation of a science ‘hub’ in the Falkland Islands.

We anticipate that it will take you about 20 minutes to complete the survey and welcome you to add as much additional information, thoughts or ideas as you feel may be relevant at the end of the survey.

The information that you provide in this survey will be used exclusively by SAERI and FIG to meet the objectives detailed above. Analysis of the data collated within the survey will be summarised iin the form of a report, but individual comments will remain anonymous. Any research ideas that are divulged in this survey will remain confidential.

All questions  must be completed and submitted by no later than 23:59 GMT on 31st May 2019.

Good luck and thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts on conducting science in the Falkland Islands and South Atlantic.
