SUNRAISE – SURE Summer School URBAN + MOUNTAINS, 15th – 21th of July 2019
In the first part of the summer school, from July 8 to July 14 we will offer a number of highly interactive lectures designed to familiarize participants with the study area. Subsequently, individual field work and supervised group research in and around the Salzburg region is scheduled for July 15 to July 21. The topics for this group research will be identified by the students with support of the lectures - we will prepare brief descriptions of the case studies beforehand to simplify the process. In the final part, we are looking forward to the participant's presentations of their findings.
