Join our regular talks about polar research and science soft skills valuable for early-career scientists! Some seminars will be only online, hybrid or in-person.  We would like to provide a stage for lively discussions, potential cross-institutional collaborations and networking.

Please join us for a Polar pub Quiz on Thursday 23rd of March, 2023 at 17:00 at Studenterhuset in Copenhagen. This event is co-organised with the UCPH Bio PhD network.

We are excited to invite you to our first in-person event of 2022. Are you working within the Polar regions or are you interested in Polar Science?

Please join us for this social event on Thursday 24th of March at 16:00 at Øster Voldgade 10 in Copenhagen. It will be an excellent opportunity to get to know your peers in an informal setting. We will of course provide drinks and everyone is welcome.

Science Communication with Prof. Marianne Achiam (KU)

As a doctoral student, you need to communicate your research in various contexts. This workshop will give you concrete tools to structure your spoken, written and visual communication to create an engaging storyline that targets your select audience.

During November Sofia Ribeiro from GEUS talked with us about climate change, people and sea-ice ecosystems in the Arctic.

Coming back from the summer break, we took a look under the ice and learn about winter ecology of arctic lakes.

The June seminar was directed towards practices to nurture mental health in academia. This seminar might come in handy if you have struggled in your academic path so far with expectations, stress, time management and everything that agitates you

The May seminar was about Arctic biogeochemistry and carbon cycling! We had not just one, but two exciting talks. Rafael Gonçalves-Araujo (Technical University of Denmark) told us about dissolved organic matter as a potential tracer for Arctic water masses, and Maria Lund Paulsen (Aarhus University) about the effect of glacial runoff on the coastal bacterial and phytoplankton communities.

Our second seminar was about ‘Realistic Project Planning – tips, tricks and hands-on exercises’ by Liv Gish on April 9th 13:00-16:00.

This seminar was kindly supported by the Department of Geosciencs and Natural Resource Management at the University of Copenhagen.

For our first talk on March 12th 15:00-16:00 we are pleased to have Mette Bendixen talking about ‘Arctic coastal changes and their potential importance in a time of global sand shortage’. The talk will be around 30 min and afterwards there will be time for questions and discussion.
