Whether an individual, university, company, or foundation, we seek contributions from those who share our interest in better understanding the polar regions, their importance in a global contest, and supporting the career development of young researchers. Whether a 50 EURO individual pledge for three years or a 50,000 EURO corporate contribution, every donation helps.
By supporting APECS, you can reach out to a huge number of future leaders and employees. We recognize all sponsors are unique, so we look forward to working with you to recognize your contribution. Some ways we can do that include:
Sponsors of an event can be given a strong presence and high profile during the entire event as well as in event-related articles and publications. This includes, for example, the option for booths and presentation opportunities during workshops and field schools or a display at a networking reception or during a webinar and on the online archive.• Support a workshop
• Sponsor a networking reception
• Sponsor a mentor panel
• Splash out and sponsor a field school
• Support new learning and communication tools by sponsoring a webinar
• Help us improve and provide better service by sponsoring the evaluation of APECS activities and their impacts
• Sponsor a prize for the most-viewed online poster
• Featured job ad space
• Sponsor an outreach event
• Other ideas are welcome!
Supporters can be highlighted through our rotating ‘Featured Organization’ and are included in the ‘Partners and Sponsors’ section with a description of each organization, web links, contact information, downloadable brochures and multimedia material (when available).
Supporters can have the unique privilege of placing front-page ‘featured’ articles on the APECS website to share time-sensitive announcements relevant to the APECS community. All new material on the APECS website is also available via RSS feed, Facebook, and Twitter.
Sponsors can be given an annual prominent feature in the APECS newsletter, delivered to the inbox of thousands of researchers. This newsletter contains the latest updates on activities, committees, polar and cryosphere related news, and recent job postings and is also distributed by partner organizations.
APECS announcements reach over 2000 early career researchers from all fields of polar science. Sponsors can send targeted messages such as job announcements, course information, conference submission calls, and more to either the entire APECS distribution list or to members from specific countries or research disciplines.
APECS is comprised of enthusiastic polar researchers at many career stages, all looking to be the best polar scientists they can be. APECS can help its sponsors get a young-researcher perspective or find enthusiastic and talented early career participants for your next committee, conference, course, project, or proposal and paper reviews.
