The InnoBlueGrowth Project has organised the Summer School “Blue Growth: emerging technologies, trends and opportunities” to encourage young people involvement in blue economy sectors by offering high-quality technical knowledge and fostering their entrepreneurial spirit.
Capacity building and training
Within this training course, PhD students and early post-docs will be initiated in experimental methodology to investigate the effect of animal activity on biogeochemical cycling in both sediments and the water column.
Class-room lectures will provide participants with an overview on the recent developments in the research field and will be combined with hands on experiments on both hard- and soft substrate biogeochemical cycling (optode and electrode techniques, nutrient cycling, bio-irrigation) using state-of-the art experimental equipment.
The second GEOTRACES summer school will be held between the 23rd and 28th September 2019 in Cadiz, Spain, on board of the school ship Intermares A-41.
GEOTRACES summer schools aim at teaching the skills and knowledge necessary for a good understanding of the biogeochemical cycles of trace metals. General lectures will be given by 10 world-leading international scientists and practical sessions including field sampling workshops will be ran throughout the week.
The AMARE-MED 2019 advanced school on quantitative methods for ecosystem approach to fisheries application will be held at Istituto Veneto delle Scienze, Lettere ed Arti in Venice (Italy) from 1 to 6 July 2019.
This course will be conducted as a 13 day intensive course at the marine field station Kristineberg in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden. A total of 16 PhD students in underwater science disciplines may take part. Master students, postdoc or early career scientists may also be accepted. A maximum of 12 scientific divers can participate in the course but a maximum of 4 participants that use the same techniques while snorkeling may also be permitted if they do not have the required dive experience.
The Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (FFPW USB) is holding its International Summer School 2019 in the Czech Republic from 24th June till 19th July 2019.
The Summer School lasts four weeks and includes many excursions and lectures, but mostly work on small research projects under the guidance of experienced researchers in very well-equipped faculty laboratories. The FFPW USB provides an accommodation and full board to all participants for free.
The EU-funded AQUAEXCEL2020 project is offering a free training course on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) technology.
The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) is offering a genetics training course, in support of fisheries and aquaculture management. The training course will introduce participants to principles and practical application of genetics in fisheries and aquaculture including relevant evolutionary, quantitative- and population genetic theory. The course introduces a range of genetic and genomic tools that underpin management of aquatic natural resources, and how such approaches complement other management tools, together with a critical valuation of costs and benefits.
In 2019, the Biological Station Helgoland (Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (Germany) and The Lovén Centre - Kristineberg (University of Gothenburg - Sweden) in cooperation with Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) and Alleco Finland offer the 5th international course “European Scientific Diver” within the framework of the ESD regulations published by the European Scientific Diving Panel (ESDP) of the EU-Marine Board.
The Ocean Teacher Global Academy is hosting a training course on the discovery and use of operational ocean data products and services. This course will provide knowledge and hands-on experience for the data, satellites and instrumentation, access and formats, tools and software for operational activities.
