Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Dear APECS Germany members,

APECSGermany LogoOver the last ~21 months we as APECS Germany initiated several very successful events all over Germany, some of which you might have heard of via our website or facebook-page. However, all this was only possible through our board-members, many of which are now actively involved since July 2016. Just last summer, we established some official terms of reference (see to ensure that a thought-through future continuation of our network is possible. One major puzzle piece of that is a board full of motivated young scientists, but for that we are of course relying on a more or less steady inflow of new board members, and that’s where you come into play!

The new board-term will start very soon in May 2018, and we happily invite you to join the board of our network so that you can bring your ideas into action! One of the very first tasks in a new board term will be the election of a new leadership team consisting of one chair and three co-chairs. However, we understand if there are question marks about being active in such a network, so in order to give you an overview on what exactly we`re doing and what we did in the past you are all invited to an informal online-presentation and a Q&A via the Zoom-Meeting-platform on May 8th, 2018 at 3 P.M.

You can join this meeting using the following link:

Please drop us a short line whether you’re interested to join on May the 8th, but please feel free to also join on short notice. Some of our current board members will be online and answer any upcoming questions regarding our past work.

We’re very much looking forward to hearing from you!

Cheers, Andi
On behalf of the APECS Germany board
