Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

This year the Arctic Frontiers 2018 poster session was held on 24 January and, new this year, in the city centre at the Scandic Ishavshotel. A team of judges helped evaluate the posters across the four themes: Aquaculture in the High North in times of change; Circumpolar Safety, Search and Rescue Collaboration; Resilient Arctic Societies and Industrial Development; and The New Arctic in the Global Context. With more than half of the nearly 70 posters being from early career researchers and the excellent quality of posters, the competition was tough! In the end, after a difficult decision, the three winners were chosen. The excellent prizes sponsored by Arctic Frontiers were awarded at the Science Conference dinner also at the Scandic Ishavshotel. A warm congratulations to:

  • 1st prize: Emmelie Åström – Trophic relationships and community structure at cold seeps in the Barents Sea
  • 2nd prize: Chloé Maréchal – Wasting disease assessment in the northern sub-Arctic seagrass beds
  • 3rd prize: William Hatchett – Reinforcing Reinforcement: Reinforcement in Fucus distichus and Fucus serratus
