The ASTARTE, PEARL & TANDEM Joint Summer School takes place from 3-7 June 2016 at the Technical University of Crete in Chania, Greece. The Joint Summer School is open to undergraduate, graduate and PhD students. Students will get 6 ECTS for successful participation at the joint summer school.

Enrolment is open from 10 Feb – 01 May 2016, students can enrol here.

Information on the summer school scholarships can be found here.

This joint summer school will bring together undergraduate, graduate students, early career scientists and/or professionals with different backgrounds, who work in the fields of coastal hazards (tsunamis, extreme rainfall, storm surge and sea level rise), flood risk management, climate change, forecasting and early warning and disaster risk reduction. This summer course will be a great opportunity for the participants to learn from distinguished scientists/professionals in lectures, and also from each other through field trips and discussion sessions. Further information on the program can be found here.

The school will focus on coastal hazards, coastal management and resilience. It aims to answer the question: What can we do now and in the future to mitigate the impact of natural hazards? The school is a unique opportunity to put together three different research communities from three different running collaborative projects:

ASTARTE (FP7 Grant No.:603839):  www.astarte-project.eu
PEARL (FP7 Grant No.:603663): www.pearl-fp7.eu
TANDEM (Grant No.: “Investissements d’Avenir” ANR-11-RSNR-00023): www-tandem.cea.fr

The fundamental aim of the ASTARTE and PEARL collaborative projects and TANDEM Joint Summer School is to improve the participants’ theoretical and methodological knowledge on coastal hazards while staying in the forefront of other organizations by offering cheaper fees.
