A training network for enhancing the understanding of complex physical, chemical and biological process interactions in hyporheic zones
ATC on river restoration and bioengineering now open for external participants
HypoTRAIN´s Advanced Training Course 7 on river restoration and soil bioengineering is now open for registration of external participants. The course will take place from 30th January 1st Febrauary 2017 in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Catalonia (Spain). Please find more information here and register via email to email@example.com.
Interactive map about Joint Field Experiments in Germany available
Joint Field Experiments (JFEs). Study site was the River Erpe, a lowland river receiving 42.500 m3 day-1 of treated waste water from a nearby treatment plant (dry weather conditions). During the daily peaks waste water represents 80% of the overall discharge of the river. The ESRs collaborated in a number of experiments and investigations which were conducted simultaneously in and at the river and its hyporheic zone. This interactive map introduces some of the ESRs and their work at the River Erpe:
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!
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.
This project is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) and has received funding from the European Union's EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020.
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.
