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.

IOCCG Summer Lecture Series 2018

Several distinguished scientists have been invited to provide lectures and practical sessions on cutting edge research, focusing on current critical issues in ocean colour science. Students will be given ample opportunity to meet with the lecturers for in‐depth discussions on various pre‐selected topics, as well as on their own scientific research. This training course is open to young graduate scientists and post‐ doctoral fellows, as well as researchers with a longer record in ocean colour research hoping to broaden their knowledge. 

ECORD Training Course

The new ECORD Train­ing Course will provide a “Vir­tual Drill­ship Ex­per­i­ence” for sci­ent­ists from aca­demia and in­dustry. This one-week course of­fers a ba­sic train­ing fo­cus­ing on the IODP core flow pro­ced­ures, pre­par­ing the par­ti­cipants for sail­ing in an off­shore drill­ship ex­ped­i­tion, and in­stilling them with an ap­pre­ci­ation for high stand­ards in all kinds of cor­ing pro­jects.
