Applications for the Summer School “Emerging topics in coastal marine ecosystems” are open!
The applications for the Summer School "Emerging topics in coastal marine ecosystems - eTOPs" is now open! The summer school will take place from the 4th to the 13th of July in Cadiz (Spain) and will grant 25 in-person (17 will be reserved for EuroMarine members, 5 for non-members, and 3 for universities from the SEA EU alliance that do not belong to EuroMarine) and 25 remote PhD students working on coastal marine ecosystems.
The training will include theoretical classes with practical laboratory sessions and field trips. The main topics addressed include climate change (marine heatwaves and ocean acidification), global anthropogenic impacts (microplastics and emerging pollutants), biological risks (invasive species), blue carbon, technology development (unmanned vehicles), and management and conservation strategies for marine protected areas.
The Summer School is coordinated by Euromarine Network researchers from the Universidad de Cadiz (UCA, Spain), CCMAR and Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn (Italy). Our researcher Carmen Santos is co-organizing this Summer School and will be also teaching the module on Blue Carbon.
All participants will be certified through the UCA International Doctoral School in Marine Studies EIDEMAR with recognition doctoral training course credits/hours.
