Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Swiss Polar Institute (SPI) Flagship Initiative programme, enabling ambitious Swiss-led multi-annual and multi-disciplinary research programmes in polar or remote high-altitude regions, has just been launched. 

The funding will be focused on field campaigns (logistics, safety, etc.), data management, outreach, and programme coordination, thus providing temporary infrastructure for a Swiss-led polar research programme

The SPI Flagship Initiatives present a unique opportunity for Swiss-based researchers, but will also engage and be beneficial to the international polar research community through strong collaborational aspects.
