Student Day

Please join us on Monday December 11 for the International Arctic Change 2017 Student Day, an event that is expected to be one of the largest international gatherings of students engaged in Arctic research.

Addressing Arctic change requires cooperation and collaboration between a variety of states, Indigenous communities, researchers, and other stakeholders around the world. Arctic Change 2017 Student Day transcends international boundaries and research disciplines to provide a range of sessions that will help equip early-career researchers with the tools that they need to succeed in international Arctic research.

The theme for this year's Student Day is ‘International Cooperation and Collaboration in Arctic Research’ and is brought to you through the collaboration of the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA), the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), the Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN), and ArcticNet. Student Day will offer a range of plenaries and workshops, as well as an ice-breaker event, an elevator pitch competition, and a networking/social evening with an Arctic pub quiz at the Ninkasi. We look forward to seeing you there!

Student Elevator Pitch Contest

New this year, Student Day participants will have the opportunity to promote their science by means of an Elevator Pitch. Contestants will have one minute and one slide to pitch their research project and pique the public’s curiosity. Judges will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to the top elevator pitches, and video versions of the pitches will be available for a People’s Choice Award. All awards will be presented at the Gala Banquet on Thursday, 14 December 2017.



The registration period for the Student Elevator Pitch Contest is now closed.
