Young Arctic Ocean Professionals – Seeking Your Input to Career Development Workshops
Early Career Polar Scientists and Professionals Invited to Help Design Upcoming EU-Funded APECS-ARICE Online Workshops
26 January 2021
The World Ocean Council (WOC) is a partner of the Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium (ARICE). This Horizon 2020 EU-funded project has the overall aim to provide Europe with better capacities for marine-based research in the ice-covered Arctic Ocean.
WOC and the other ARICE partners collaborate with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) to organize a series of online workshops primarily targeting early career technicians and engineers onboard research icebreakers, with a wide focus spanning deep sea technology, sea ice measurements, atmospheric measurements, marine robotics, etc.
The WOC is working to engage young professionals in the design and development of APECS-ARICE online workshops series.
Young ocean professionals, including early career scientists, technicians and engineers, are invited to provide input on their career development needs and the subjects they would like to see covered in the workshops.
Please provide your input by Tuesday February 2 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
As an example, one of the workshops will address “Marine Robotics”, featuring a review of the topic, the marine robotics activities of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in the Arctic region (its scientific motivations; operational and logistic requirements; the polar-impact on robot design and the CNR’s campaigns from 2015) and interactive work (with the planning of a one-week campaign in Ny Alesund with an autonomous semi-submersible vehicle to acquire data and samples at the ice-water-air interface.)
The workshop series is to be held in Q2 2021.
Dates and detailed program to be provided as soon possible.
