Registration for the Poolsymposium is open!

Thursday May 19th 2022 | 09.30 – 19.00 hrs

Museon | Stadhouderslaan 37 | The Hague

We cordially invite you to the annual Poolsymposium. This event has been postponed twice, but will now finally take place with a full and diverse polar programme! 

The annual Poolsymposium brings polar scientists, policymakers, entrepreneurs, artists and other stakeholders together with polar activities. DAC (Dutch Arctic Circle), APECS-NL (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists) and NWO (Dutch Research Council) jointly organize this polar day full of activities around various themes. 

The day’s chair and moderator will be Nienke Beintema, science journalist. Confirmed keynote speakers are, among others, Mike Meredith (British Antarctic Survey) and Kadir van Lohuizen (photo journalist). Among talks (also by APECS NL members!), the event will feature posters, art and outreach events, an evening programme with polar films and a plenary talk from APECS NL.


Registration is free of charge, but obligatory for attending the symposium.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Museon. The venue has a capacity of 250 visitors, so register on time to be assured of your participation. The symposium will be held in English. 

It is possible to present a poster during the symposium. Should you be interested to do so, please indicate this on the registration form.  

You may of course share this invitation within your network. 

We look forward to welcoming you on May 19th!
