Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Portugal has just signed the Antarctic Treaty. After brilliant work from APECS PORTUGAL and numerous organizations in Portugal and internationally, we finally made it! Early career scientists are the main force behind polar science in Portugal and getting through politics, education and science during the International Polar Year was a true challenging scenario for all of us. On of the main goals was for Portugal officially sign the Antarctic Treaty. On the 29th January 2010, Portugal officially joined numerous countries in the Antarctic Treaty. Brilliant news indeed!
