Live from Antarctica: Discussion with Scientists and Engineers at the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica Research Station

A chance to meet and engage with scientists and engineers that are working in Antarctica via a live Zoom event. First, we will talk about the Princess Elisabeth Station, the world's first and to-date only zero-emission polar research station. Then, we will dive into various science projects taking place this year. The scientists themselves will each give an overview and talk about their individual projects. We will then open the meeting for an interactive Q&A session where anyone is welcome to ask questions. We are happy to make this an interdisciplinary event with people joining from various departments and/or universities. Let's all collaborate and learn from one another!
