Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We also want to let you know that you are entitled to submit a 2nd abstract for an oral presentation if your 2nd abstract is submitted to the Education and Outreach session at ICOP2020!!! So please don’t forget to submit your abstract before January 15 to our session 7.1 Education and Outreach – and how to train the next generation of interdisciplinary researchers and science leaders to manage permafrost changes. Submit here:

We especially welcome contributions sharing challenges or success stories on how to train the new generation of interdisciplinary researchers and leaders in the use of science and engineering results to support permafrost communities, infrastructures and landscapes. To cope with a fast-changing Arctic under climate warming, researchers from different disciplines need to work increasingly together to better solve the complex issues of the North. Working together gives a broader vision of the issues and a diversity of expertise and experiences that allows a plurality of knowledge and solutions. In permafrost science and engineering, private and public funding agencies start to take an interest in interdisciplinary research as a method to address social and environmental challenges. How can we train the next generation of young researchers and engineers, who will be able to collaborate on their research between the different disciplines?

Looking forward to meeting you at ICOP2020 in Lanzhou, China!
