The OceanTeacher Global Academy (OTGA) is offering a training course in research data management, which covers the planning, creating, storing, organizing, accessing, sharing, describing, publishing and curating of data.
Capacity building and training
The Ocean Teacher Global Academy is hosting a training course which provides students with both background reading assignments that cover the main course topics, and hands-on exercises, that explore the essential elements of ocean currents data quality control and analysis methods. The course assists participants in developing specific technical skills and methods for using ocean currents data.
Applications are now being accepted for the AQUAEXCEL2020 training course entitled “Introductory Bioinformatic Course to Sequencing Data Processing”. This is a free face-to-face training course provided by the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling (Scotland, UK) in collaboration with INRA (France).
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.
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.
