General Information

The summer school is dedicated to PhD-students in the fields of Mountain Biology, Mountain Hazards and Mountain Tourism. It is offered in conjunction with and prior to the International Mountain Conference 2019 to provide PhD-students with extended possibilities to discuss their research in detail with fellow students (first part) and experts (second part). In contrast to classical summer schools, a strong focus is put on peer-to-peer interactions to facilitate and encourage networking among the PhD students that they can capitalize on in their future research careers. The summer school is an excellent preparation for the subsequent conference which the students are very much encouraged to attend.
