Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS works with mentors and partners to develop webinars to assist APECS members and other early career scientists with their career development goals as well as to highlight current Polar Research. The webinar audience consists of graduate students, post-docs, and early career faculty across several disciplines. Since its inception in 2010, thousands of people from around the world have participated in the webinars.

Online webinars were hosted by the University of Canterbury from Fall 2010-2011. During 2011-2012, the webinar series was supported through a joint effort between APECS and the US NSF ARCSS Thermokarst Project. In Fall 2012 and Spring of 2013 the webinar series was made possible due to support from the High North Academy. From 2011 - 2014 Bredbåndfylket in Tromsø, sponsored the GoToWebinar System for APECS to host the webinars. 

All webinars are available on the APECS Vimeo Website
