We have the pleasure to announce the first Training School (TS) of our active COST Action MOBILISE, organized under WG6 “EDUCATION & TRAINING, DISSEMINATION & OUTREACH”
Digitisation and Data Management Challenges in Small Collections

The aim of this summer school is to equip participants with an understanding of the principles of modern biodiversity theory and its role in Conservation Biology. They will learn practical skills for biodiversity fieldwork including sampling design and monitoring. Students will learn how to analyze ecological data with R, using some of the main packages for biodiversity data analysis and have the opportunity to try these out on their own datasets.
