Capacity building and training

ODYSSEA Summer School

The overall objective of the 1st ODYSSEA Summer School is to stimulate a scientific dialogue and create a learning experience about operational oceanography in the Mediterranean context. More precisely, after the end of the program, the trainees, coming from both sides of the Mediterranean Sea basin, will be able to:

• Understand the concept of operational oceanography

• Use the ODYSSEA project platform for retrieving, managing and processing oceanographic and environmental data of the Mediterranean Sea

Sub-seaf­loor flu­id trans­port and gas hy­dra­te dy­na­mics summer school

The overlying goal of this summer school is to bring PhD stu­dents and young Post­docs in touch with the International Ocean Discovery Programme (IODP) at an ear­ly sta­ge of their ca­re­er, in­form them about the ex­cit­ing re­se­arch wi­t­hin IODP as (I)ODP and DSDP have been pro­ven to be the most suc­cess­ful in­ter­na­tio­nal­ly col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve re­se­arch pro­grams in the his­to­ry of Earth sci­en­ces, and to pre­pa­re them for future participation in IODP expeditions.

6th Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquia: “Ecology through the omics lens”

The Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquium (RMSC) has been running yearly since 2013, and has a central aim of educating and training young researchers in Ecology, alongside promoting their network and getting involved in academic debates. The 6th edition of the colloquium will serve as an opportunity to foster learning and discussions on the relevance of an interdisciplinary perspective in Ecology & Evolution. The event will consist of lectures, activities, and group discussion sessions. Advanced doctoral students and early post-docs are especially encouraged to apply.

EMUNI - OGS Summer School 2018

The objective of the summer school is to introduce the participants to the significance of blue growth for the Euro-Mediterranean region and thereby impact their future careers or studies.

The course will be spread over several locations, as well as featuring online elements. The full outline of these dates are as follows:

Ecole Thematique FieldEpiGen

This CNRS funded summer school aims to provide training for those interested in using population epigenetics, starting with sampling and experimental strategies over experimental acquisition of data, and data analysis and eventually publication writing. It is anticipated to generate publication ready data during the school.

13th ALTER-Net Summer School

The 13th edition of the ALTER-Net Summer School will run from 22 August- 1 September 2018 in Peyresq, France. This edition, in keeping with the themes of previous Summer School's, will provide an engaging atmosphere for participants, encouraging them to ask questions and to think about resolving sustainability challenges in the future, and also how to produce interdisciplinary approaches.

4th International German - Swedish - Finnish European Scientific Diving (ESD) Training Course 2018

In 2018, 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 4th 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.

4th International PhD student course in Documentation Techniques for Scientific Divers 2018

This course will be a 12-day intensive training course at the marine field station Kristineberg in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden. A total number of 16 PhD students may take part. Master students, postdoc or early career scientists may also be accepted. Maximum of 12 scientific divers can participate in the course but we will also admit a maximum of 4 participants that use the same techniques while snorkeling if they do not have the required dive experience.
