The German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), an international hub for biodiversity science, will organize its first summer school Biodiversity Synthesis from 23 to 29 August 2015 in Leipzig, Germany.
The summer school gives 20 young scientists the opportunity to interact with the various biodiversity research groups at iDiv. Mirroring our range of expertise, we will focus on a different scale every day, starting from molecular level and finishing to ecosystems.
The programme will consist of keynote lectures, hands-on exercises, discussions, excursions, participant presentations, as well as group work around the theme of biodiversity synthesis. Excursions will be organised to our biodiversity platforms and to interesting locations around Leipzig!
