The FP7 project [JERICO|http://www.jerico-fp7.eu/] will organize a 2nd summerschool .
Date 13-20 june 2014 (saturday - friday)
Topic The preliminary title of this summerschool is "From data to decisions". We aim to cover the entire information cycle from data gathering via data management, data dissemination, data analysis, data assimilation to data-based decisions. A preliminary powerpoint is availble here.
Location The location is split between holiday resort "Kijkduin" located near the beach south of the Hague, near the Sand engine coastal observatory and (ii) the Deltares offices in Delft, both in the Netherlands. The holiday resort site is within walking distance from the beach where the largest Dutch coastal observatory "Sand engine" is located, to which we will pay informal and work visits. The Deltares offices are a 30 min bus ride inland and offer lecture theaters for the lectures and excellent computational facilities for hands-on exercises.
Audience The target group is early career scientists plus scientifically oriented early career marine spatial planners (MSP). Students are expected to arrange for their own fucning for travel and lodging. To facilitate maximal participation across disciplines and countries, students will be offered affordable lodging (YMCA pricing level for single rooms in European cities ~ 300 EUR for 7 nights) in the "Kijkduin" holiday resort, in bungalows shared by 3 students (separate rooms). The JERICO team is currently agreeing on participation conditions, which will include a support letter from a senior scientist you work with, your CV, and a letter explaining what you can learn from the JERICO community, and what specific expertise you can offer to the community.
