Training by other Organisations

There are many organisations and institutes that offer training in marine science, whether it is for undergraduate or graduate students or post-doctoral scientists. Here are some resources to help you find training opportunities, and learn more about the capacity building efforts of different organisations. 

  • The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) has convened two Capacity Building Summits, involving a number of organisations that are active in Capacity Building in marine science. The SCOR website has a section dedicated to international capacity building efforts: http://www.scor-int.org/Capacity_Building/index.htm. The Capacity Building Summits produced a matrix that shows the different types of capacity building efforts that different organisations are undertaking. This matrix is shown below.
  • As a result of this workshop, IOC/IODE, with the support of SCOR and POGO, created a website where all organisations can advertise their summer schools: www.oceansummerschools.org.
  • The European project Euromarine, has also created a Training Catalogue, where different types of training courses in Europe can be found: http://www.euromarineconsortium.eu/content-education/overview-trainings/.
  • Many of the training opportunities in marine science are summarised in the following articles:
