The European Polar Board (EPB) and EU-PolarNet are pleased to announce the launch of the European Polar Infrastructure Database. The database, which includes detailed information on European stations, vessels and aircraft available for Arctic and Antarctic research, provides a valuable information source to support the planning of polar research fieldwork and an up to date inventory of European logistical capabilities in the polar regions. The database is fully updateable, with infrastructure managers able to access and manage information on their facilities, and new facilities can be added.

The European Polar Infrastructure Database was compiled by the EPB in collaboration with EU-PolarNet, with data provided by the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs (COMNAP), the International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic (INTERACT), and EUROFLEETS2. Work on the database was led by Yves Frenot (Institut Polaire Francais Paul Emile Victor (IPEV)) and Gonçalo Vieira (University of Lisbon (IGOT-UL)) through their work in the EU-PolarNet project. Other contributors to the development of the database were Luis Encalada (IGOT-UL), Carla Mora (IGOT-UL), Joseph E Nolan (EPB), and Renuka Badhe (EPB).

57e3c6e0355f8c73308f0645 Logo CCAMLR Vertical ColorThree leading Antarctic organisations announced opportunities for early-career researchers. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs (COMNAP) and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) are working together to attract talented early-career researchers, scientists, engineers and other professionals to strengthen international capacity and cooperation in fields such as climate, biodiversity, conservation, humanities, technologies and astrophysics research.

ANTARCTIC ORGANISATIONS LAUNCH FELLOWSHIPS AND SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2018

  SCAR and COMNAP have again joined forces to launch fellowships for early-career researchers. SCAR will offer 3 to 4 fellowships of up to USD $15,000 each for 2018 and COMNAP will offer up to 1 fellowship with funding of up to USD $15,000.  The fellowships enable early-career researchers to join a project team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often creating partnerships that last for many years and over many Antarctic field seasons. Note that the application process for SCAR and COMNAP fellowships are now separate and the eligibility criteria differs. The deadline for SCAR and COMNAP fellowship applications is 11 JULY 2018.

  The SCAR and COMNAP schemes are launched in conjunction with the Scientific Scholarship Scheme of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).  The CCAMLR Scholarship provides funding of up to AUD $30,000 to assist early-career scientists to participate in the work of the CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups over a period of two years.  The objective of the scheme is to build capacity within the CCAMLR scientific community to help generate and sustain the scientific expertise needed to support the work of CCAMLR in the long-term.  The deadline for CCAMLR scholarship applications is 1 OCTOBER 2018.

All three schemes are being jointly promoted by the three organisations.
