Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The international steering committee for the IPY EOC Assessment is meeting in Bremerhaven, Germany on October 24th to 26th, 2010 hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI). We are tasked with inventorying the numerous education, outreach and communication (EOC) events that occured during the 2007-2009 IPY, and supported by ICSU, IASC, SCAR, IPYIPO and APECS. The steering committee will meet to review the progress of the inventory and to begin a general assessment of the IPY EOC activities that will help inform science and funding agencies on the many EOC efforts worldwide.

If you were involved or know of a EOC program that occurred during the latest IPY please write a short description and send it to ipy-outreach(at)
