The Department of the Interior and the U.S. Geological Survey have made it a priority to train the next generation of scientists and resource managers. The Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CSC) and consortium institutions are working to contribute to this initiative by supporting and building a network of students across the U.S. interested in the climate sciences and climate adaptation. The purpose of this project was to support the development of a national early career communication platform to facilitate and increase information sharing and networking across the CASCs and consortium institutions. This was accomplished by working with the Early Career Climate Forum (ECCF), a CASC-supported science network dedicated to improving research practice through communication and collaboration. Project goals included the redesign and expansion of a pilot website that was originally developed by early career scientists in attendance of the 2012 Northwest Climate Science Bootcamp as well as adding services such as a regular blog, email list-serve, database of members, training modules for CASC retreats and bootcamps, all directed towards the advancement of early career scientists in the field of climate change science and adaptation.
