EU network of mesocosms facilities for research on marine and freshwater ecosystems open for global collaboration.

AQUACOSM-plus spring school 2022

25/04/2022 - 29/04/2022

AQUACOSM-plus is organising a spring school between 25-29th April 2022 in Budapest, Hungary.

This five-day school offers a unique training opportunity for students and early-career researchers in using experimental mesocosms in aquatic ecology.

Topics include using mesocosms to address grand ecological challenges, designing and implementing mesocosm experiments, addressing common problems in ecological data analyses, and opportunities for doing research in mesocosm facilities across our network.

Presentations and hands-on activities will be led by several of our consortium members, with many opportunities for networking and developing research collaborations.

We will cover the cost for food, accommodation, and travel for 20-22 students and early-career researchers from the European Union and states associated with the Horizon2020 programme (Iceland, Norway, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey, Israel, Moldova, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Ukraine, Tunisia, Georgia, and Armenia). Applicants from other regions are welcome but will be expected to cover their own expenses. Slots are competitive and will be granted based on applicant interests and qualifications.

Special Requirements: AQUACOSM-plus Spring School will be held at the Petnehazy-club hotel, a small pet-friendly hotel. All participants will be staying at this venue for the entire duration of this workshop. We will do our best to accommodate any special needs/requests (e.g. severe allergies), but this may not always be possible!

Still a chance to register!

We still have a few slots available on a first come, first serve basis. If interested, please fill out an application form before Friday, April 8th at 12pm (CEST).
