Another year at the Arctic Frontiers Conference, and another great year of poster awards organized by APECS. The Arctic Frontiers Conference and APECS have teamed up for the last 4 years to recognize early career researchers for their efforts at the conference.
This year there were four fabulous winners. In Part 1 (Live, work and stay healthy in the Arctic) Morten Skandfer won for his poster titled “Improving the health protection of high Arctic Miners”. In Part 2 (Health and Environment in the Arctic) Ariadne Szczybelski won for her poster titled “Development of ARCtic Biological INDicators for the impact assessment of (new)human activities: the ARCIND project”. In Part 3 (Shipping and offshore in the Arctic) Caroline Coch won for her poster titled “Effects of cruise ship tourism on the remote island ofÍsafjörður, Iceland”. Each of the section winners received a one-day free registration pass for the 2015 Arctic Frontiers conference, Climate and Energy. The overall poster winner was Laila Arensatter Hopstock for her poster “Arctic hearts – seasonal variation in cardio-vascular disease risk factors in the Tromsø study 1979-2008”. The overall winner won a full complimentary registration for next year’s conference courtesy of the Arctic Frontiers Conference.
