As the UK National Committee of the international APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists), the UKPN has full access to the huge range of resources available on the APECS website:

As a member of the UKPN, you are automatically a member of APECS, so check out these resources and take full advantage of the opportunities on offer!

The UKPN has a very successful record of engaging and inspiring career skills development workshops, expert mentoring panels and networking events. In the next few weeks, presentations, documents and other resources generated during these events will be posted here available for all members and interested groups. Keep an eye on this page for these informative and invaluable resources for early career polar scientists!

The UKPN has links and collaborations with many funding bodies in the public and private sectors in the UK and abroad, and we want all our members to have the best opportunities arising from these links. We are currently developing a resource full of organisations with funding and sponsorship programmes and initiatives of which all UKPN members could take advantage. This resource will also be posted here over the coming weeks, so be sure to pop back! The APECS website also has a large collection of information on potential funding and sponsorship for early career scientists and educators, so check that out too at
