Capacity building and training

FaCE-It Summer School 2019

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.

Second GEOTRACES International Summer School

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.

5th International PhD-student course in Documentation Techniques for Scientific Divers 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.

University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice International Summer School 2019

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.

ICES Training Course: Genetics in Support of Fisheries and Aquaculture Management

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.

5th International German - Swedish - Finnish European Scientific Diving (ESD) Training Course 2019

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.
