The theme for the workshop was “Antarctic Science - Global Connections”, aiming to bring together polar ECRs from around the globe to network, engage with topics presented at the workshop through a series of plenary and workshop sessions, and to potentially develop new research ideas and collaborations to take forward into their careers in the future.
