Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS)
Founded 2006, growing out of ICARP II (2005) and the 4th International Polar Year (2007-2008), which emphasized the need to nurture the next generation of scientists in order to foster a continuum of engagement and capacity in the leadership of international research initiatives.
Stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations; develop effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach; facilitate international and interdisciplinary networking to share ideas and experiences and to develop new research directions and collaborations; provide opportunities for professional career development; promote education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and stimulate future generations of polar researchers.
