Research in Svalbard: An APECS workshop 2021

Awarded: NOK 0.16 mill.

Numerous international and interdisciplinary research projects are carried out in Svalbard every year. Furthermore, such research projects involve both senior and early career researchers (ECRs), some of whom may have never previously set foot on the archipelago. The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) proposes to host a 1-day workshop for ECRs attending the Svalbard Science Conference. This workshop follows a succesful workshop held in 2019. The workshop is being coordinated by three chapters of APECS; namely APECS Norway, the UK Polar Network, and APECS Russia. The workshop will focus on sharing practical advice for planning successful field sampling campaigns as well as covering online tools available for sharing research and science outreach. By bringing a diverse group of polar ECRs together, we foster the ideal conditions to promote networking and future collaboration. The agenda will include four sessions (Logistics and Funding; Environment; Data sharing and Outreach; Svalbard Science) including keynote (several confirmed speakers, pending project approval), oral and poster presentations. All attendees are encouraged to actively participate.
