The Arctic Hub - Regional and Global Perspectives
In conjunction with the Arctic Science Summit Week 2013 in Kraków, Poland, APECS will organize a 1-day career development workshop prior to the conference to help young researchers learn important skills and create new collaborations and contacts with both early career colleagues and senior mentors. The Arctic Science Summit Week symposium is regularly organized by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and its partners and has developed into one of the most important Arctic conferences for both the scientific community as well as for other stakeholders. The APECS workshops aims at building interdisciplinary knowledge on the Arctic as a key element in the Earth System to give each participant a more overarching view on the region beyond disciplinary research questions (see below for thematic outline). To achieve this, participants will share knowledge with each other and short lectures by APECS mentor experts will be given. The workshop will focus on the same aspects as the ASSW2013 science symposium.
