Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Arctic Institute and the U.S. Arctic Research Commission invite attendance at a Network North reception for early career and emerging leaders in fields associated with the Arctic region. This reception will convene from 5:00-8:00 p.m. EDT on the George Washington University campus in Washington, D.C.

Preceding the Arctic Futures 2050 conference, organizers will be hosting an icebreaker reception to gather Arctic researchers, old and new, to meet others working in the field and informally present opportunities to further pursue their interests in D.C. through fellowships, job opportunities, internships, and volunteering.

All Arctic young professionals, both local to D.C. and those in town for Arctic Futures 2050, are welcome to attend. This event will also serve as a kickoff event to regular Arctic happy hours for those attendees permanently based in the D.C. area. Appetizers and refreshments will be served.

Registration for the Arctic Futures 2050 conference is not required for this reception.
