International Summer Academy

International Summer Academy on Spatial Ecotoxicology and Ecotoxicological Risk Assessment — Using an Open Community Approach | Campus Landau, Germany | September 9th – 22nd, 2013.

An increasing number of chemical substances are being released into our environment. Particularly affected are developing countries with high contamination but often inadequate control mechanisms and insufficient resources for risk assessment. Spatial analysis offers more and more applications and potential within ecological risk assessment. The growing Open Community Approach makes this technology available for everybody. Experts of various disciplines from national and international institutions will combine basic concepts of ecotoxicology with methods of geographic information system analysis. This will be illustrated with practical examples, both in the field and at the computer.
The International Summeracademy gives an overview on ecotoxicological risk assessment with a focus on the use of freely available methods and resources of remote sensing and spatial analysis using GIS. The course wants to provide young scientists with inexpensive methods and resources of spatial analysis for ecotoxicological risk assessment, that are oriented for use both in developing and developed countries.

Participants can apply for DAAD *scholarship* (travelling expanses, course fee): http://www.oecd.org/dac/aidstatistics/daclistofodarecipients.htm
