Sotacarbo Summer School

The Sotacarbo Summer School on low carbon technologies aims to provide Ph.D. students and young researchers with an advanced formation on low carbon energy conversion technologies, with particular reference to carbon dioxide capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS). The event is organised every year (the second week of June) by Sotacarbo in collaboration with the University of Cagliari, IEA Clean Coal Centre, CO2 GeoNet and ECCSEL ERIC.

The programme is focused on the most promising technologies for potential applications in both power generation and industrial sectors. It includes lectures by eminent speakers from all over the world, as well as workshops and technical visits. Particular attentions is paid to promote a close interaction between all the participants (lecturers and students).

The participation is free of charge.

OGS Panarea Scientific Diving Summer School

The OGS Panarea Scientific Diving Summer School is open mainly to master graduates, ongoing and postgraduates Ph.D. students in scientific disciplines and professionals. The School aims to provide an advanced formation on multi parameter monitoring techniques and definition of experimental protocols for the sampling and study of the benthic communities, with special focus on assessing effects of CCS climate change and ocean acidification on organisms, communities and ecosystem/habitat.

The programme offers scientific dives, multidisciplinary lectures, given by eminent speakers, and practical exercises in the laboratories. Topics covers the geological characteristics of the unique active volcanic area of Panarea (Aeolian Island, Italy) its biological components adapted to the naturally acidified vent systems, and the hydrothermal fluids characterisation.

The event is organised every year (the last week of September) by OGS and Sapienza University (Rome), in collaboration with CO2GeoNet, Zoological Station Anton Dohrn (Naples), INGV (Palermo) and Diving Center AMPHIBIA at the ECCSEL NatLab-Italy laboratory of OGS.
