Association of Polar Early Career Scientists
 

APECS Svalbard logoSvalbard is the site for numerous international and interdisciplinary research projects every year that involve both senior and early career researchers. To foster international cooperation among all scientists, sharing of information and data on the research conducted on Svalbard is essential. Especially for early career researchers that may conduct their first field season in this area, knowing the logistics and infrastructure available to carry out their research and developing international connections with ongoing research are critical.

APECS is creating a platform for early career researchers working on Svalbard to form a network to help increase our understanding of the environment and social conditions on this Arctic Archipelago. The impetus for this network will be a workshop for early career scientists working in the various international research communities such as Hornsund, Barentsburg, Ny-Alesund and Longyearbyen, remote camps and vessels to discuss current research, develop collaborations and learn more about the facilities and research logistics offered on Svalbard.

To continue the discussion about Svalbard after the workshop and to create a site for sharing data and research projects as well as resources important for early career researchers working or wanting to work on Svalbard, APECS created this Svalbard Early Career Researcher Network Platform! We will add tools for you to share ideas and projects as well as resources like the recordings of the initial workshop, the posters of Svalbard research from the APECS Virtual Poster Session, Svalbard FrostBytes and many more!

APECS Svalbard Workshop

A workshop for early career researchers working in the various international research communities such as Hornsund, Barentsburg, Ny-Alesund and Longyearbyen, remote camps and vessels as well as anyone who is simply interested in working on Svabard in the future will be organized in the first week of October! we will discuss current research, develop collaboration and learn more about the facilities and research logistics offered on Svalbard. To allow for easy data sharing and live discussion and to allow others who are interested in working on Svalbard to join the discussion, the workshop will be online using our web conferencing system gotomeeings. Please visit the workshop website for more information and on how to register!

As we know not everyone will be able to attend the workshop, we will make the recording of the workshop available on this page afterwards!

Svalbard FrostBytes

Are you working on Svalbard and are looking for a way to share your project? How about creating a FrostByte! FrostBytes – ‘Soundbytes of Cool Research’ is a concept developed by APECS to share interesting information about the Polar Regions. These 30 – 60 second audio or video recordings are designed to help researchers easily share their latest findings to a broad audience.

Check out the Svalbard FrostBytes page for more information!
