Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Around 80+ early career scientists attended the APECS networking event held at this year’s European Geoscience Union Symposium in Vienna in April. The event was organised in partnership with the Young Earth Scientists (YES) Network.

The social event was held at Café Einstein in the heart of Vienna and provided a fantastic opportunity for Polar early career scientists and young Earth Scientists from around the world to come together and promote research collaborations. We were really glad to see so many people engaging in networking and taking the time out of a busy conference to attend and make the event such a success. Thanks to all of those who attended – and watch out for future networking opportunities at large international conferences.

The event was sponsored by SCAR (Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research) and AGU (American Geophysical Union) and was organised by Inès Borrione (Alfred Wegener Institute) Aisling Dolan (University of Leeds) and Jo Venus (YES President). If you're interested in making an APECS event like this happen at a conference you're attending in the future, let us know!
