Baltic Earth Working Group on Education

Background and objective

Introducing and educating young scientists is a crucial part of the work within the network. This is important for the maintenance and vitalisation of the network, but also a mean to broaden the arena of scientific discussions. Summer schools of 1-2 weeks duration are organised regularly with different foci. Summer schools are open for undergraduate and graduate students, and young scientists active in the Baltic Sea region, or from outside the region, but also with interest in the focus of the specific school. Specific seminars and conference sessions at conferences shall provide a platform for young scientists to help them grow into the scientific world, but also allow a new and fresh perspective for the established scientific community.

Description of tasks
(or Terms of Reference)
