Since 2008, the €150,000 InBev-Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship has provided young scientists with the opportunity to conduct research in East Antarctica operating out of the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica research station. A joint initiative of the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund and the International Polar Foundation, the research grant aims to promote scientific excellence in Antarctica and underscores the crucial role polar science plays in furthering our understanding of the Earth and how it functions.
The 2014 Conference & Award Ceremony took place at the Palais des Académies/Paleis der Academiën in Brussels (Belgium) on September 17th 2014.
The International Polar Foundation communicates and educates on polar science and polar research as a way to understand key environmental and climate mechanisms.
The IPF also promotes innovative and multifaceted responses to the complex challenges raised by the need for action on sustainable development.
