The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) was considered by the Joint Committee for the International Polar Year (IPY) as a major legacy of IPY. APECS is a worldwide association of early career scientists interested in the polar regions and the cryosphere generally. Its mission is to raise the profile of polar scientists by providing a continuum of leadership that is both internationally and interdisciplinarily focused, and to stimulate collaborative projects. Within 3 years, APECS became a highly polar respected association, providing a strong voice for young researchers in polar research issues while enable information sharing between early career scientists, promoting and organizing science, education and outreach events, and having an active involvement within other polar organizations.
