Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


MariaMonteiro 2INTERACT LogoThe Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is currently involved in the EU Horizon-2020 INTERACT project, an Arctic-wide network of field stations. In relation to this work we are organising a panel discussion about 'Fieldwork in the Arctic' during the upcoming Arctic Frontiers 2018 conference in Tromsø, Norway.

The aim is to have a stimulating discussion about what it takes to plan and carry out field work in the Arctic, covering aspects such as logistics, safety, and how best to ensure fieldwork is as successful as possible. The hour-long discussion will comprise four panelists who will share their experiences and plenty of time for questions from the audience.


  • Alex Messerli, Norwegian Polar Institute
  • Ingrid Wiedmann, Norwegian Polar Institute
  • Svein Mathiesen, International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry
  • Morten Rasch, University of Copenhagen

Date & Time:
Tuesday 23 January 2018, 17h00-18h00
