European Polar Board (EPB)

The European Polar Board Secretariat has moved

The European Polar Board secretariat moved to the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), its new location, as of 1st January 2015.

The EPB was hosted at ESF from 1995-2014 since its inception in 1995 as EMaPS (European Forum for Marine and Polar Science) to encourage the development of European co-operation in the fields of marine and polar science, which then evolved into two separate boards: the European Marine Board and the European Polar Board.

ESF is pleased to have hosted EPB during that time and wishes it every success in the future.
