During the IPY, two international hands-on training workshops were held at the Otto-Schmidt Laboratory for Polar and Marine Research at the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia. These workshops were under the conference heading of IMPETUS, meaning to be the catalyst for new collaborations between young Russian researchers and their international counterparts. Both IMPETUS workshops improved existing and built up new collaborations and networks including the whole range from early to senior career scientists. The success of these workshops highlights the need for a 'sense of belonging' among scientists beyond the traditional nationally and disciplinary established boarders.
