International Training Course on Seismology, Seismic Data Analysis, Hazard Assessment and Risk Mitigation
The GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences organises annually International Training Courses on 'Seismology and Seismic Hazard Assessment'.
The training courses provide theoretical fundamentals and practical training in applied seismology, for geoscientists and engineers from earthquake-prone developing countries.
The program is particularly useful for seismological station and network operators, data interpreters and those concerned with seismic zoning and hazard assessment. These postgraduate courses are part of the educational and training program of the GFZ Potsdam, the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, UNESCO, and UNISDR in the field of geosciences and disaster mitigation.
The 4-week training course 2020 will take place in San Luis and San Juan, Argentina as a regional course for Latin America from October 19 to November 13, 2020, in cooperation with the Universidad Nacional de San Luis and the Universidad Nacional de San Juan. Young scientists and engineers from developing countries are invited to apply to the course. The course circular, scientific programme, information about the course as well as the link for the application are available on our website. Deadline for application is June 12, 2020.
