The SOLAS Summer School is a 2-week advanced international capacity-building programme for early-career scientists and is an integral part of the project SOLAS. By providing excellent training on scientific techniques, soft skills, and understanding of global environment change issues, it adequately prepares future proficient scientists. Its comprehensive schedule provides the next generation of scientists opportunities to interact and network with their peers. Promote and encourage research that can improve understanding of global change. The school aims to equip international PhD level students with the interdisciplinary skills and knowledge needed to understand the nature of air-sea interactions, including biogeochemical and physical processes and feedbacks. It also aims, by bringing to their attention cross-cutting disciplines, to broaden students understanding of the numerous aspects of global change research preparing them for the challenge ahead. The school educates them to science-policy issues. It also provides the opportunity for young researchers to network, create and strengthen future collaborations.
