APECS is happy to announce Shaping the Future of AMAP early career researcher (ECR) workshop presented by APECS in association with AMAP this spring. This one day workshop will be held before “The Arctic as a Messenger for Global Processes - Climate Change and Pollution” in Copenhagen, 3-6 May 2011, hosted by AMAP, the University of Copenhagen and Aarhus University
AMAP is an international organization established in 1991 to implement components of the Arctic Environmental Protection Strategy (AEPS). Now a programme group of the Arctic Council, AMAP's current objective is "providing reliable and sufficient information on the status of, and threats to, the Arctic environment, and providing scientific advice on actions to be taken in order to support Arctic governments". If you are interested in Arctic environments this workshop will help you learn about how science and policy work together in this area.
The workshop will take place at the University of Copenhagen on May 3rd and will introduce early career researchers to AMAP as an organization that communicates science to policy makers and others. ECR and AMAP mentors will discuss the different fields of science AMAP is interested in, and ECR will work together for formulate a message of their concerns for future directions of study in AMAP. All workshop participants are encouraged to take part in the workshop and in the larger meeting from May 4th to 6th.
Limited travel funds will be available for early career researchers on a competitive basis, with priority for those who have submitted an abstract to the meeting (please submit the abstract here
