Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Are you wondering what the various projects are that we are working on? Have you been wondering how to get more involved with APECS? Is there something that you think we should be doing to help young researchers or to promote outreach, etc and are you prepared to help us make a reality?

We think we have come up with a way to answer all your questions -

Working on projects and ideas together is the main way APECS works towards shaping the future of polar research. Ideas such as the Virtual Poster Session, The APECS Mentorship Programme, the Literature Discussion Forum and the many workshops and panel discussions we have - all started with a few talented people working together with a special aim - helping each other and to create a better way to conduct polar research and to help others learn about the polar regions.

The APECS Council recently approved the new APECS Working Group Programme to create a way for all APECS members to take their ideas, find colleagues with similar interests and make those great thoughts in your heads into something that can help shape the future of polar research. Find out more about already established Working Groups at or if you have your own idea, follow the simple steps on how to create your own Working Group under!
