Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


In November, APECS received a grant for 1 Million NOK from the Research Council of Norway (RCN) to continue to operate the International Directorate Office in Tromsø, Norway, through collaborations with the University of Tromsø (UiT) and the Norwegian Polar Institute (NP).  The grant covers roughly 1/3 of the total funds needed to continue the current level of APECS activity.

In addition, thanks to Aase Tveito (Senior Advisory at UiT), APECS received ~1.7 Million NOK from the Tromsø Kommune's RDA programme to support the development of a permanent sustainable funding plan for APECS. These funds will be used to support the Directorate during 2010 and 2011. The goal of this project is to develop permanent relationships with several other national and international partners that will pledge to help support the Directorate office beginning in 2012.

APECS would like to thank Aase and many others at UiT, NP, RCN and the Tromsø Kommune who have helped APECS establish our international office in Tromsø and look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.
