Arctic Frontiers Young

Young

We have seven different events under our Arctic Frontiers Young program, inviting young actors to the Arctic scene.

  • Science for Schools is arranged in collaboration with the Science Centre of Northern Norway and the APECS. We invite 10th grade students in Tromsø to participate in a science project. Following lectures by scientists the students work on a chosen project that is presented in a poster session during the conference. 
  • Science for Kids is arranged in collaboration with the Science Centre of Northern-Norway, the Fram Centre and Akvaplan-niva A/S. We invite kindergartens in Tromsø to create their own science project, learning how to work as a researcher in the Arctic. 
  • Arctic Career Seminar is arranged at UiT The Arctic University of Norway and introduces students to northern career opportunities. The seminar consists of presentations by senior business leaders followed by mingle and networking with peers and experts on Arctic business development. 
  • Emerging Leaders facilitates meetings between young professionals and PhD students/post docs and senior representatives from academia, business and the public sector. The one-week program is a blend of technical, social and cultural events. 
  • As a part of the program offered to early career scientists at the Arctic Frontiers conference, the Association for Polar Early Career Scientist (APECS) organize the APECS Panel Discussion on Scientific Publishing on different aspects of career development. Previous topics of conversation have been science communication, career paths in and outside academia, and field work.  The one-hour panel discussion includes several panelists sharing their reflections on the topic in question, followed by a discussion and Q&A. 
  • The Arctic Frontiers/Arctos PhD workshop  is arranged by the ARCTOS research group.
