The Eurofleets+ “Floating University” will take place on board of the Research Vessel (RV) Celtic Voyager, in Cork harbor, from 19th to 25th February 2020.

The Floating University courses are suitable for early stage researchers of marine related sciences and address a range of topics, focusing on the applications and operation of research vessel data acquisition and sampling systems, as well as equipment.

In this edition, teaching will mainly address the operation of multibeam echosounders (MBES) and sub bottom profiling and their applications for mapping and characterising the seabed. Offshore training will be supported by lectures, workshops and online resources.

The overarching objective of the training programme is knowledge transfer in state of the art hydrographic surveying from key personnel within the INFOMAR project to an emerging cohort of marine scientists and researchers.

All the information about the course is available here.

Applications must be received by 22/11/19.
