The event will start with a presentation about Princess Elisabeth Antarctica, the world's first and to-date only zero-emission polar research station. Then we'll dive into various science projects taking place this year.

The scientists currently at the station 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 different disciplines around the world. Let's all collaborate and learn from one another!
