HIGRADE Summer School: Ecological-Economic Modelling for Biodiversity Conservation , 07.09. - 13.09.2008 in Bad Schandau (Nationalpark Sächsische Schweiz, Germany)

This summer school is an activity of the Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Environmental Research (HIGRADE), further supported by the EU Marie Curie project “EcolEconMod” at the UFZ. The summer school provides an introduction into the main ecological and economic concepts of conservation as well as ecological-economic modelling as a helpful major way of combining social and natural science knowledge to achieve better results for biodiversity conservation policies. The course covers an introduction into basic ecology and basic economics, demonstrates the potential and difficulties of such inter-disciplinary research and comprises lectures and practical work. The primary target group of the course are young scientists (PhD students and post-docs) from ecology, economics or modelling.
