   The VIII APECS Portugal Workshop took place at the University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, on 6 November 2017, as part of the 8th Portuguese Conference on Polar Sciences, with the theme “Different Paths in Science”.

   The Workshop aimed to present different paths and areas that can be followed within the scientific field to young scientists, from research through universities or institutes, to companies, governmental organizations, or even non-governmental organizations (NGOs). With an increasingly changing world, knowing the opportunities that exist is essential for a more successful future.

   Thus, the Workshop was attended by 3 special guests with different backgrounds: Stephanie Winnard from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), Sara Aparício from the European Space Agency (ESA), Alexander Shestakov from the World Wildilfe Fund (WWF).
