Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Banner 2 2

APECS has many opportunities for our members to get involved in our network. Career development, education and outreach, mentoring, and networking all play a role in making APECS a valuable organisation, both for early career researchers (ECRs), and for the wider polar community - the video presents a taste of each, and showcases the many opportunities and successes that have been made possible thanks to the tireless work of ECR volunteers. Hopefully this video and the all the information we have available on the APECS website will exlain not only what we do but also give you ideas how YOU can get involved in APECS!
