A training network for enhancing the understanding of complex physical, chemical and biological process interactions in hyporheic zones
Summer School HypoBASICS in Berlin
In June all early stage researchers (ESRs) of hypoTRAIN met for the very first time within the summer school "HypoBASISC - a summer school on hyporheic zone processes". Together with their supervisors and a lot of other PhD students working on the same topic they experienced a week full of interesting lectures, discussions, and personal encounters. The summer school took place at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin, Germany. We thank all participants for the wonderful time we spent together!
Field course in England
In the beginning of November all HypoTRAIN ESRs met in Surrey (UK), a very picturesque area south of London, to learn about methods for hyporheic zone investigations. The aquired knowlegde was immediately applied in a small sandy river which is intensively observed by researchers of the University of Birmingham.
HypoTRAIN vodcast online!
We proudly present our first video-podcast ("vodcast")! The movie gives insight into the topic and some sub-projects of HypoTRAIN. Have fun watching it!
The HypoTRAIN kick-off meeting took place on January 19 on the premises of IGB in Berlin. All project leaders discussed common strategies to harmonize experimental approaches and details on the organization of the network activities.
hypoTRAIN network funded
The EU decided to fund the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN HypoTRAIN for the period January 2015 to December 2018. The network will consist of 12 EU-funded Early Stage Researchers/PhD students and 4 students funded by the Swiss government.
