Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 


252 Julia Garcia Oteyza Ciria ECR workshop at ASSW2021

 

The Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) organized together with the Polar Prediction Project’s (PPP) International Coordination Office and the Young Earth System Science (YESS) network a workshop during the business meetings of the Arctic Science Summit Week 2021, organized virtually by Portugal.


The workshop was split into three 1.5h sessions over two days (21 and 22 March 2021).

  • Session 1: “Home Office (Fatigue) and Zoom Networking – COVID-19 and ECRs” Sunday, 21 March 2021 06:00 – 07:30 GMT 

  • Session 2: “The 4 Essential Cs - Coordination, Communication, Community, and Collaboration” Sunday 21 March 2021 16:00 – 17:30 GMT 

  • Session 3:  “Predict and Predictability – The Arctic YOPP” The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) Monday 22 March 2021 12:00 – 13:30 GMT

Session 1: “Home Office (Fatigue) and Zoom Networking – COVID-19 and ECRs”

Sunday, 21 March 2021 06:00 – 07:30 GMT 

We heard about different national and international surveys and experiences that were carried out to better understand the impact of the pandemic on academia. Following the talks, we invited early-career scientists to join us for a panel discussion on the impacts COVID-19 may have on their scientific work. 

 

 

Session 2: “The 4 Essential Cs - Coordination, Communication, Community, and Collaboration”

Sunday 21 March 2021 16:00 – 17:30 GMT 

Participants learned about the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) and The Young Earth System Scientists community (YESS). International collaboration is crucial these days to carry out polar research. In order to bring researchers together from all over the globe, the above-mentioned communities coordinated and fostered international and interdisciplinary studies in terms of related project groups, awareness-raising workshops, and many more collaborative activities on both Polar and Alpine regions, and the wider cryosphere via communication with early career researchers. After a presentation on communication with the public, the session touched upon some of the challenges of bringing the scientific community together. A panel discussion expanded on two short talks on Science and Diplomacy in the Arctic and insights about Indigenous collaboration. The session concluded by bringing these ideas together by showing what was done across the collaboration and communication spectrum by YOPP’s International Coordination Office.

Session 3: “Predict and Predictability – The Arctic YOPP” The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP)

Monday 22 March 2021 12:00 – 13:30 GMT 

This session offered an overview of some of the key activities associated with the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) efforts and YOPP-endorsed projects in the Arctic and the North Atlantic. Through a series of rapid 5-min talks, the presenters introduced a variety of YOPP activities, showcase a variety of available meteorological datasets and how to access them. The session concluded by highlighting ways in which ECRs can contribute to YOPP and PPP.
