Welcome to APECS Germany, the new National Committee of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists!



After years of smaller attempts and good ideas by some young researchers in the German APECS community, it was now possible to gather a small group of motivated researchers who set the spark of this new national network.

You have ideas and want to be an active part of APECS Germany? We invite you to participate! An even more diverse group of active members will make the start of this new network even more exciting.

Help to produce new ideas, share your experience and knowledge among other young polar researchers and profit from new connections in not only the German polar research community. Ultimately, the productivity, outcome and success of APECS Germany will rely on the activity and commitment of its active members.

This is the official homepage    of APECS Germany.
