The World Ocean Council (WOC) says is partnering the Arctic Research Icebreaker Consortium (ARICE), a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project, to provide Europe with better capacities for marine-based research in the ice-covered Arctic Ocean.
According to a statement by WOC, 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.
WOC noted that 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.
