UK Polar Network Workshop Series
  • Other
During 2009, UKPN ran a series of two and three day workshops for students and post-doctoral researchers with the aim to promote interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations, to provide training both in scientific terms and in career skills, and to encourage and facilitate mentoring and networking with established scientists. Each workshop had a particular scientific theme within which mentors presented various aspects of research, including measurement techniques and science outreach during polar expeditions. Participants presented their work during poster sessions. As an important feature to the events, mentors gave an insight to their career path in their talks and during panel discussions and breakout session. Breakout sessions and panels were the core of the workshops. In small groups, topics such as science funding, communication with the media, outreach in schools, and paper publishing were covered. Panels tackled questions such as the future direction of polar research in the UK and alternative careers.
