European Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (EuroPICS):  is set up under the auspices of the European Polar Board (EPB) as a scientific and technical coordination group representing the scientific disciplines and associated technical capacities associated with ice core science.   

The overall purpose of EuroPICS is to provide a forum for European ice core scientists and technical experts to co-ordinate priorities and activities, and to pursue those priorities in the most effective and efficient way, working in co-operation with relevant agencies and national programmes.  This may be through European-scale activities, through multi-nation projects, or through co-ordination of single-nation efforts.  The priorities initially correspond to those of the international version called IPICS.
