This course is structured as a five-day Summer School providing a unique insight into the contemporary debate on Data Management in the environmental and earth sciences. Leading scientists and experienced technical specialists will address this topic from different perspectives. The school is mainly addressed to staff working in the relevant international research infrastructures. The school is also open to PhD students and PostDocs. Master students about to start a Doctorate will be accepted.
Capacity building and training
GEO is inviting climate partners and those interesting in supporting the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement to attend the 1st GEO Climate Workshop: Earth Observations for the Paris Agreement in Geneva, Switzerland, following the 2018 GEO Symposium.
This training course will serve the purpose of introducing participants to many key aspects of European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) Sequence Retrieval. The course will introduce participants to a number of areas, including:
This workshop takes place in the frame of the EMBRC BioBank project (EBB), aiming to remove barriers accessing bioresources. The coming workshop will connect companies, marine culture collections/biobanks and ABS National Contact Points. The knowledge, issues and needs of companies regarding ABS regulation will be discussed, and flagship use-cases proposed by companies themselves will be selected and beta-tested for them by the EBB partners in the light of the ABS framework.
This course will adopt a practical and hands-on approach. It will be delivered in a state-of-the-art computer lab environment offering the participants an individualised learning experience through practice. Dedicated sessions in the programme will link to the COPERNICUS Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) and EMODnet, and together with the JERICO-NEXT Virtual Access portals will be used to showcase the relevance of their data streams through dedicated hands-on practical sessions.
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
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.
European Space Agency (ESA) organises a series of summer schools on Monitoring of the Earth System to promote the exploitation of Earth Observation EO data across disciplines, with a specific focus on their assimilation into Earth System models.
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.
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:
