The SUPER-G Summer Schools
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 on 25th November 2022“
The fourth ’School’ focused on the “Challenges and societal benefits from grass-based livestock production in the Continental Region of Europe” took place on July 4th and 5th at the Georg-August-University in Göttingen, Germany.
The fifth ’School’ focused on “Modelling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and organic carbon (SOC) in grasslands using the DeNitrification DeComposition (DNDC) model” to be organised by the University of Aberdeen, Scotland on July 25th to 27th, turned into a webinar that will be displayed in the webinar series.
The sixth ’School’ focused on “Grassland Soil Health Assessment” took place at the Department of Agronomy and Department of Forest Engineering, Campus Rabanales, University of Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain between 14th & 15h December 2023.
We hope these events had appealed to students and early career researchers from all over Europe.
