Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Nature Award for Driving Global Impact was launched in 2019 with the aim of championing researchers who are striving towards the achievement of one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

You will find the award’s webpages here:

While we have received substantial numbers of submissions, these have tended been greatly dominated by medical researchers in specific fields, whereas we are aiming to recognise and promote the work of researchers in a wider variety of fields.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have or if there is anything I can do to support communication about the programme within your organisation.

Best wishes
