Cool Science – training course in polar research
The project is focused on organising common fieldwork on Iceland in various fields of polar research. This will enable the students to participate actively in ongoing research activities of both university teams. Experience gained within such course help students to carry out their own research projects. They might collect samples or do measurements for their further research during the course itself. Two conferences, where participants present their work, will be organised in Brno to supplement and enhance the fieldwork outputs. Bringing together students from both universities can also deepen the possibilities of recent or future cooperation and enhance the chance of success in their future scientific carriers. The project will be beneficiary not only for students, but importantly also for the lecturers. Common fieldwork and meeting at the conferences can significantly improve the cooperation on various scientific topics as well as enriching the teaching approaches of both teams.
