The aim of this 3-day summer school is to explore the role of nutrient and carbon cycles in the natural environment, in particular their relevance in groundwater, soil and agricultural processes, assessment and management approaches. Novel laboratory and field-based monitoring techniques which can be used to assess nutrient transport, natural attenuation processes and remediation technologies will be presented. The course will cover theoretical aspects, use of appropriate modelling and analytical tools, field-scale in situ applications and practical demonstrations.
The sessions will be presented by experienced training facilitators and experts from the INSPIRATION Innovative Training Network (www.inspirationitn.eu) and the National Technical University of Athens. The programme includes technical sessions and hosted field trips, with the objective of consolidating participant understanding and skills development.
The event is open to external participants including, but not limited to, stakeholders, practitioners, managers, researchers and students with interests in the assessment, management and remediation of nutrient and carbon impacts from different sources. Participants with backgrounds in agricultural/environmental engineering, environmental sciences, social sciences and policy are encouraged to attend. The course will be attended by scientists and researchers from the INSPIRATION Innovative Training Network, providing a unique opportunity for networking with leading experts in the field.
