Applications now open for 6th African Ocean Research Discovery Camp

The deadline for applications is 10 March 2019.


SCOR is pleased to announce the 6th course of the Regional Graduate Network in Oceanography (RGNO), a SCOR-supported cooperative research and capacity building initiative in southern Africa. The course will again be hosted by the University of Namibia's Sam Nujoma Marine Research Center in Henties Bay and Namibia's National Marine Information and Research Center in Swakopmund, and will take place between 28 April and 24 May 2019.


The RGNO is a research-driven, intense learning experience in the biogeosciences of the Benguela Current Ecosystem (BCE), a particularly interesting ocean habitat. Participation is most valuable for people who are actively involved in an ongoing research project to which the course topics can contribute and who would like to apply their skills to a better understanding of the BCE. 


RGNO invites PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, honors MSc students, but also professors and experienced researchers, to consider the microbiological and geochemical course topics of interest to their own research and to apply for the course.
