The Association of Polar Early Careers Scientists (APECS) is an organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early career faculty members and educators with interests in Polar Regions. APECS developed during the 4th International Polar Year (IPY 2007-2008) with the primary objectives of stimulating interdisciplinary and international research collaboration and developing effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach.
Comprising over 3000 members, hailing from over 75 countries and representing almost every major and minor Polar Science division and application, APECS has a substantial network of sponsors and collaborators, including 15 senior scientific organizations and research institutes as well as five early carrier partner organizations.
