APECS is currently finishing up its term and will start a new term on 1 October. We are now inviting all APECS members to join our activities as members of our Project Groups!

Project groups are working groups of APECS who are led by Council members. Some of the groups have been established over many years, others are newly developing. See a full list of offered Project Groups and a description below!

Late applications may be considered until the Project Group is full but a delay in the evaluation may cause a late start.
Please note that Project Group members are not part of the APECS Council, thus, do not require a certain number of Project Group registrations per person. If you want to apply for more than one Project Group, please submit another application form. Project Group Leads will evaluate your registration and receive approval from the current ExCom 2020/2021. The APECS Office will inform you on your application status and provide you with more information shortly before 1 October.

The duration of APECS Project Groups is usually for the full term 1 October 2021 - 30 September 2022, but temporary and event-based Project Groups may be of shorter duration. More information in the Project Group descriptions.

We are looking forward to having you onboard for an exciting and fun year in APECS!



We are happy to let you know that the current APECS Leadership organized some training sessions for you! These shall be interesting for everyone who is very new to APECS or who considers taking a leadership role in the future or who really wants to learn how APECS works, as we really want you to take the most out of your APECS experience and involvement. A short presentation was followed by a Question and Answer session.
