The 2023 SUPER-G Summer Schools
will be in June & July!
The SUPER-G European Summer Schools are designed to prioritize practical skills and to transfer the knowledge of grassland functioning and management generated in the project, giving the opportunity to stakeholders from different backgrounds and geographic locations to participate and absorb this knowledge, while sharing their own experiences. This is happening across 5 different Universities in Europe.
The first ‘school’, at the University of Cordoba, was focused on the Mediterranean biogeographic region, under the topic “Ecosystem services of Mediterranean Permanent Grasslands”.
The second ‘school’ will focus on “Ecosystem services and disservices of Alpine grasslands” and will take place in Grugliasco (Turin) & Traversella (Valchiusella) on 19th to 21st June 2023
The third ‘school’ was held in Ultana, Sweden and focused on the Boreal biogeographical region, under the topic “Obstacles and opportunities for management of permanent grasslands in Sweden“
The fourth ’School’ will focus on the “Challenges and societal benefits from grass-based livestock production in the Continental Region of Europe” and will take place on July 4th and 5th at the Georg-August-University in Göttingen, Germany.
The fifth ’School’ will focus on “Modelling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and organic carbon (SOC) in grasslands using the DeNitrification DeComposition (DNDC) model” and will take place at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland on July 25th to 27th.
We hope these events will appeal to students and early career researchers from all over Europe.
