Call for applications for the IMBeR ClimEco8 Summer School, 2023.
Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) and its Interdisciplinary Marine Early Career Network (IMECaN), together with the host institute, ZRS-Koper, are thrilled to invite Masters and PhD students, and early career researchers from any discipline of marine science, to apply to attend its 8th ClimEco summer school. The theme of ClimEco8 is sustaining the ocean we need for the future we want.
It will be held at the ZRS-Mediterranean Institute for Environmental Studies, in the port city of Koper in Slovenia. The aim of ClimEco8 is to help develop new marine researchers who will be at the forefront of addressing ocean challenges. We have an extraordinary group of internationally recognised experts, who will guide participants during the summer school, to develop strong theoretical and applied understanding of different marine science disciplines, and how they can be integrated to help generate solutions to the grand challenges facing the world’s oceans. In addition to lectures, each day will also include workshops and practical sessions in topics such as science communication and how to operate effectively at the science-policy-society interface, so as to influence decision-making processes and help secure the ocean we need, for the future we want. There will also be a field trip.
The summer school will be delivered in English and participants (attendees and all the lecturers) attend every session, every day for the duration of the summer school.
Participants will selected based on their marine science discipline, career status, and geographic distribution. Applications from underrepresented groups are especially welcome.

The deadline for applications is 10 April 2023.
