The European Polar Board (EPB) is an independent European Organization of Directors and Managers of the major European National Polar Programmes. It was established in 1995 by the European Science Foundation as a strategic advisory body on Polar Science. It is concerned with major strategic priorities in the Arctic and Antarctic and has members from national operators and research institutes in 18 countries.
The EPB’s mission is to coordinate European Arctic and Antarctic research, optimize the use of European research infrastructures, foster multilateral collaboration between European national funding agencies, national polar institutes and research organizations and represent polar issues within European research framework programmes.
EPB acts in the European context, with a bipolar vision, a scientific and managerial membership and the ability to support scientific activities and cooperation by means of coordinated polar facilities and field operations. Over 40 polar stations in the Arctic and Antarctic are managed by EPB members.
The European Polar Board has active liaison with major polar programmes outside of Europe and with international polar scientific organisations and networks and other relevant international agencies.
