Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We kindly ask you to participate in research on the role of motivation, adaptation and psychological traits helpful in working at the polar station. The study is conducted internationally; thanks to your commitment, it will be possible to compare polar explorers at polar stations in the Arctic and Antarctica.

Completing the survey may take about 15-20 minutes, and participation in it is entirely anonymous and voluntary. The survey and more information are available at this link:

Thank you for your time,
