An international Summer Academy that uses R and GRASS GIS in the different modules!
The interesting bit: The course is fully funded by the DAAD, which means that people from developing countries can participate for free/all costs of travel, accomodation and course fees will be covered

Best regards

> Dear all,
> we will host the „International Summer Academy on Spatial Ecotoxicology and Ecotoxicological Risk Assessment <http://www.summeracademy-landau.de/> - Using an Open Community Approach“ from 12.-25. September 2016 at University Koblenz-Landau, Campus Landau, Germany. 
> Further details and registration are available on our website:

> Developing countries are particularly affected with high contamination, but often have inadequate control mechanisms and insufficient resources for risk assessment. Spatial analysis offers more and more applications and potential within ecological risk assessment. Our ‘International Summer Academy on Spatial Ecotoxicology and Ecotoxicological Risk Assessment’ gives an overview of ecotoxicological risk assessment with a focus on the use of freely available methods and resources for remote sensing and spatial analysis using GIS.  The course provides young scientists with inexpensive tools that are oriented for use in both developing and developed countries.
> Topics: 
> - Problem formulation
> - Hazard assessment of chemical stressors
> - Characterization of effects on One Health
> - Pesticide pollution and vulnerability concepts
> - Earth-to-space-based observing systems for environmental risk assessment and disaster management
> - Use of Open Source spatial analysis tool
> - Open community approach in One Health risk mapping
> - Creation of global pesticide application maps
> - Risk assessment and data availability in developing countries
> The Summer Academy is funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) with financial support from the Federal Foreign Office. 
> We are looking forward to welcome you in Landau!
