The COST Action Bottoms-Up organizes its third Training School on “Innovative tools to analyse species-environment relationships”, which will be held in Grenoble / Saint Martin d’Hères (France) on October 4-5th, 2022.

Analysing the relationships between species and their environment has long been a challenge for researchers as well as managers of natural areas. However, it is crucial to use sound and unbiased tools to provide results that could be useful to understand species behaviour and inform environmental policies and management. Over the last decade, different statistical tools have been developed and tested over biodiversity datasets, some of which will be presented during the training school. Interventions will comprise lectures and computer practical works.

We invite researchers to express their interest to participate as trainees. Participation in the Training School will be free of charge for all trainees, but it is limited to up to 35 trainees. Selected trainees who are located in one of the 32 countries that are either COST members or near neighboring countries can be reimbursed for their long-distance travel and through a 180€ daily allowance, see reimbursement conditions here.

Please, express your interest to participate as a trainee by sending an email to the Action Chair (Sabina Burrascano), to the training school coordinator (Francesco Chianucci) and to the local organizer (Yoan Paillet) by the 27th of July 2022. Priority will be given to young researchers (from PhD students to post-docs with up to 8 years of experience after their PhD). We aim at making the application process as lightweight as possible. Your application (form: https://forms.gle/RemXuNdw3eifqrML7) should include your name, current affiliation, current status (in particular with respect to your PhD), and a list of relevant publications (if any). Add a very brief motivation why you want to attend and declare if your participation is dependent on receiving financial support from the COST Action.

2022- FIELD SAMPLING FOR MULTI-TAXON BIODIVERSITY STUDIES IN EUROPEAN FORESTS

TRAINING SCHOOL
“FIELD SAMPLING FOR MULTI-TAXON BIODIVERSITY STUDIES IN EUROPEAN FORESTS”

The COST Action Bottoms-Up organize its second Training School on “Field sampling for multi-taxon biodiversity studies in European forests”, which will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) on June 20-22, 2022.

Addressing the need of common sampling protocols for European forest structure and multi-taxon biodiversity to be used at broad spatial scales, the COST Action BOTTOMS-UP (CA18207) recently published the paper “Handbook of field sampling for multi-taxon biodiversity studies in European forests”. This training school will briefly illustrate the standard approaches for forest monitoring presented in the handbook while providing the participants with the opportunity to apply some of the methodologies in the field with experts in the topic.

We invite researchers to express their interest to participate as trainees. Participation in the Training School will be free of charge for all trainees, but it is limited to up to 35 trainees. Selected trainees who are located in one of the 32 countries that are either COST members or near neighboring countries can be reimbursed for their long-distance travel and through a 180€ daily allowance, see reimbursement conditions here.

Please, express your interest to participate as a trainee by sending an email to the Action Chair (), to the training school coordinator () and to the local organizer () by the 22st of May 2022. Priority will be given to young researchers (from PhD students to post-docs with up to 8 years of experience after their PhD). We aim at making the application process as lightweight as possible. Your email should include your name, current affiliation, current status (in particular with respect to your PhD), and a list of relevant publications (if any).

Venue

The Training school will be held in the city of Lisbon (Portugal).

Lisbona

Portugal in general and Lisbon in particular have been constantly increasing in importance as touristic destinations. That ensures a high receptivity capacity of the city, in terms of room and board, with restaurants and accommodations available at any price.

Lisbon has an important international airport that allows easy connections with all European capitals and extra-European cities: https://www.aeroportolisboa.pt/pt/lis/home.

The Faculty of Science of the Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL) is accessible by subway from “Campo Grande” and “Cidade Universitária” stations.

Bus lines stopping near FCUL: 701, 731, 735, 736, 738, 783
