The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Find out more at the APECS website.
APECS Belgium, the Belgian National Committee of APECS, was founded by Ines Tavernier and Anton Van de Putte in 2011. Its members have organized and participated in many events and activities since then, for example: the 2012 & 2013 APECS BeNeLux Symposia, a Science Fair during the 2013 Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting in Brussels, and more recently the 2016 APECS NL/BE Symposium.
Every early career scientist based in Belgium with an interest in the polar regions in is highly encouraged to join us! We also invite others with links to polar education and research to become a part of APECS Belgium. Click here to contact us and here for more info on current members.
