Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) film Stephen Curtain Vimeo

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists is proud to present the following video, which showcases the core activities of APECS, and celebrates the geographic spread of members, who are drawn from all continents.

Career development, education and outreach, mentoring, and networking all play a role in making APECS a valuable organisation, both for early career researchers (ECRs), and for the wider polar community - the video presents a taste of each, and showcases the many opportunities and successes that have been made possible thanks to the tireless work of ECR volunteers. Thanks to all those who took part in the filming, and to the much wider community of APECS members who will continue to develop the organisation into the future!

This video was filmed in June 2018, during the 2018 APECS World Summit in Davos. Created by Stephen Curtain,  this was produced in conjunction with the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the European Polar Board (EPB).
