Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


For the fourth consecutive year, INQ is pleased to announce one of the flagship events in its programming: the My Northern Project science outreach contest.

New this year: the contest is now open to Master's students who have analyzed their collected data. The competition also remains open to students enrolled in a PhD program. Of course, only research projects with a northern or Arctic theme are eligible.

The competition:

Exercise in popularizing and synthesizing science, My Northern Project is a competition in which students present their northern or Arctic research project in 5 minutes.

The goal of the exercise is to popularize, inform and captivate the audience!

The grand prize:

During the regional final of My Northern Project, which will be held in Quebec City on May 20, 2020, between 4 and 6 students will be selected by a jury to represent Quebec at the international final of My Northern Project at the Arctic Circle Assembly in October 2020 in Reykjavik, Iceland. Presentation at the regional finals in Québec City must be given in French. The international component of the competition is jointly organized by the Institut nordique du Québec and  UArctic.

Winners last year got funding for all their expenses (bus to Quebec, flight to Iceland, accomodation, etc.).
