Capacity building and training

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.

ENA Sequence Retrieval Workshop

This free course will introduce users to the powerful search and retrieval methods available within ENA (European Nucleotide Archive) for annotated sequences, genomes, raw data and metadata, as well as download options from the ENA browser and an introduction to the various ENA browser tools. There will also be a section on cross references and how to retrieve accessions for other resources linked to the primary data in ENA.

COLUMBUS Training Course: "Creating Impact by Knowledge Transfer for Funding Agencies"

Within the timeframe of the project, COLUMBUS has and will ensure to continue to create measurable value from research investments contributing to sustainable Blue Growth.To do this, it uses its own robust Knowledge Transfer methodology. This has been tested and trialled for a number of marine and maritime sectors, and also piloted by the Belgian funding agency, VLIZ. This training course will introduce attendees to the methodology, provide case studies of its application and outline some further recommendations for ensuring that funded projects reach their potential impact.

7th International SOLAS Summer School

The SOLAS Summer School is a biennial, international event that brings together over 70 students and 15 world-leading international scientists, in a variety of fields, for a combination of lectures and practical workshops. It aims to teach the skills and knowledge of the many disciplines needed to understand the nature of ocean-atmosphere interactions and how to link ocean-atmosphere interactions with climate and people. It allows doctoral students and early-career researchers to see how their work fits into the broad canvas of SOLAS, and global change research more generally.
