Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Prior to the IPY-OSC conference, the polar community of Portugal got together in late April 2010 and spent a day showing their work done during the International Polar Year (IPY). The number of teams and young researchers triplicated in the last 3 years, with 15 polar research teams and more than 50 scientists, of which most are early career scientists. The minister of Higher Education and Technology and the President of the Foundation for Science and Technology attended and emphasized the brilliant work we have been doing, including the work with APECS. Well done all!
