Stockholm Summer Polar Pub 12 June 2018

Welcome to our last Polar Pub in Stockholm before summer! While we have focused on the northern Polar region at our previous Polar Pub, we now move southwards: Our guest speakers Robin Blomdin and Hanne Nielsen will talk about their work on Antaractica.

 

Polar week activities!

Regional Polar Pubs and online activities during Polar week 19 – 25 March.

APECS Sweden is holding gatherings across the country during Polar week. Events are being planned for Göteborg, Stockholm, Umeå, and Uppsala. Each event starts with fika and talks followed by a lunch or dinner at a nearby restaurant or pub. Stay tuned for more details from each regional centre or contact your local representative.

There are also many opportunities to engage online and internationally: check out APECS International page for ideas

APECS career panel in Umeå 8 June

Studying social sciences gives us all plenty of opportunities to use scientific knowledge and skills, not only for a career in academia, but also in governance, community development, planning and many other areas. Learn with us about opportunities and challenges in career choices for early career Arctic social science researchers, both inside and outside academia!

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) will be organising a panel discussion on “Careers opportunities in Arctic Social Sciences” during the 9th International Congress on Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS) (8-12 June 2017, Umeå, Sweden), where you will have an opportunity to hear career experiences of our excellent panelists that we hope would be inspiring for your future career choices.

Join us on 8 June 2017 at 14:30 at Umeå University in room MC313.

  • Anne-Lill Drugge (Centre for Sami Research (Cesam) – Vaartoe, Sweden)
