Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

apecs logo webnorden logoThe APECS Nordic Project team collected opinions and experiences from indigenous and non-indigenous early career researchers (ECRs) and Indigenous peoples in Nordic Regions. The APECS Nordic Survey was conducted in spring 2014. The survey was available in Danish, English, Finnish, Northern Sami, Russian, Swedish. It included questions about interactions between ECRs, Indigenous peoples and Northern communities, about research and Indigenous communities, the use of western science and Traditional Knowledge, as well as education and training needs that might help facilitate meaningful and effective communication and research collaboration in Nordic Arctic communities.

The survey is now closed. We thank all of you that participated in it. The results of the survey will be made available before the end of 2015. 

More information about the APECS Nordic Project and its activities can be found on the main project website.
