Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


From the recent Arctic Council meeting in Nuuk, a report was released entitled "Senior Arctic Officials Report to Ministers."

Some highlights of the report include the recommendation from AMAP that "there is a need for early career scientists to play an increasingly important role in future Arctic Council work. In this regard, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) should be more involved in Working Group activities." CAFF also referenced a recent agreement with APECS which provides "a vehicle for APECS members to increase their knowledge by becoming actively involved in international science and policy projects. At the same time, CAFF benefits from the participation and input of new ideas by young scientists."

Both CAFF and AMAP have also indicated planned future collaborations with APECS, and APECS is excited about future activities with the Arctic Council and its affiliates!
