The Royal Society Te Apārangi Council establishes Committees from time to time to enable Council and management to respond to rapidly changing concerns or emerging issues.
There are currently three special Committees:
Early Career Researcher Forum Committee (ECR Committee)
This Committee is responsible for developing a programme of activities to benefit Professional Members holding Early Career Researcher status.
This Committee undertakes activities under the wider umbrella of ANZCCART (The Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching).
This Committee is responsible for coordinating activities for New Zealand’s involvement in SCAR (The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research).
By improving the details of what’s happening right where the ice first encounters ocean, we expect to provide more certainty of these large-scale impacts under scenarios of a changing climate.
