Do you think your institution would make a great host for the APECS international directorate?
What is in it for you:
Ensure the future of polar research and demonstrate your commitment to the development of early career researchers by helping APECS shape the Future of Polar Research. The APECS International Directorate helps boost the reputation and international profile of its host organization. At our current host institution AWI, APECS is involved in three EU projects, providing a substantial amount of overheads. Third-party funding like this will not only provide additional financial support but also visibility and the international standing of the host institution.
With a network spanning more than 76 countries with more than 3,800 members, APECS’ activities have global reach. If you reach out to the PhD students and Postdocs of your institute, there is a good chance that they are in APECS and can tell you how APECS is helping them. We also actively engage with the host organizations and other local stakeholders and have a strong focus on outreach in the local area. Our Annual Reports provide you with a sense of the variety of activities organized by APECS members.
