Capacity building and training

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.

COST OceanGov - MSP Training School

As part of the activities of the COST Action Ocean Governance for Sustainability (CA 15217) a Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) Training School will be held at Queen’s University Belfast in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The workshop is aimed at PhD students. The training school will focus on examining the emergence of MSP as a new governance paradigm and critically engaging with questions related to stakeholder participation and power. The workshop will also explore how we might move MSP towards more transformative and socially just practices and examine how MSP might be linked to SDGs.

Marine Biogeochemistry Training School on Biogeochemical and Ecological Dimensions of a Changing Ocean

In light of society’s pressing needs to prepare for the future consequences of global warming, it is of major importance for the next generation of young marine researchers to grasp the basic biogeochemical concepts and gain the capacity to use the acquired knowledge in their future work.
The aim of this course is to provide students (Ms and PhD) and young Researchers, with an exceptional opportunity to gain a better understanding of the marine biogeochemical cycles and large-scale distribution of biological utilized elements and/ or tracers of oceanographic processes.

Fish Immunology Workshop

Welcome to the Fish Workshop hosted by the Cell Biology & Immunology group at Wageningen University & Research. This website provides information and registration opportunities.

The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organised annually since 1998. Typically, the workshops are characterised by one-hour presentations given by experienced lecturers, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. The workshops have been adopted by the International Society for Fish and Shellfish Immunology (ISFSI). This year’s (2018) subject is FISH IMMUNOLOGY.
