Early-career scientists and young professionals from the private sector, governmental agencies and non-governmental organisations can apply to participate in this year’s summer school until 30 April. The intensive and varied programme is intended to equip participants with transdisciplinary knowledge and a deep understanding of the processes that shape the sensitive surface of the Earth. The following central questions will be addressed: Why is the Earth surface system dynamic? What are the triggers of dynamic processes? What are possible societal adaptation strategies for sustainable land management?
The programme will include lectures, various discussion formats, and interactive projects. The Summer School brings together talented young researchers and professionals from around the world to discuss frontier research questions, foster international cooperation, and provide opportunities for networking.
