APECS Sweden developed from the Swedish IPY Youth Steering Committee, which was formed in 2007 and enjoys a partnership with Vetenskapsrdet (VR), Swedish Research Council. This partnership with VR means we have been able to operate with a small budget, which has allowed us to enhance career development of early career polar researchers in Sweden through several means. The networking workshop held in May 2008 in the Stockholm Archipelago brought together 25 early career polar researchers from 13 nationalities. For three days they discussed their research, and identified career development needs for early career polar researchers in Sweden. This partnership has also allowed for a career development workshop: a career day held in January 2010. Professionals from academia, industry and government, all with experience in polar research, were brought in to provide advice on how to succeed in their respective industries. APECS Sweden has also been able to provide support for early career researchers to attend international conferences and events, such as the IPY International Early Career Researcher Symposium, held in Victoria, Canada in December. Finally, APECS Sweden strives to promote polar research throughout Sweden through Education and Outreach events and serves as a platform to promote Swedish polar research and successful career development events to APECS and other international polar organizations. In the future, we plan to increase mentorship opportunities prior to conferences in Sweden in addition to expanding the network of early career polar researchers throughout Scandinavia.
