MEDSAL’s Summer School

An induction workshop for young scientists’ on advanced coastal aquifer salinization study and assessment tools

The project

MEDSAL “Salinization of critical groundwater reserves in coastal Mediterranean areas: Identification, Risk Assessment, and Sustainable Management with the use of integrated modeling and smart ICT tools”, aims to secure the availability and quality of groundwater reserves improving the identification, detection, classification, modeling, and risk assessment of salinization in Mediterranean coastal areas. It involves 7 partners (SWRI, CERTH, CUT, FST, POLIBA, MEU, and THL) from 6 countries (Greece, Cyprus, Tunisia, Italy, Turkey and Germany) with activities of monitoring, sampling, analysis, modeling in 5 sites (Rhodope – Greece, Samos – Greece, Bouficha – Tunisia, Salento – Italy and Tarsus – Turkey). MEDSAL Project © is part of the PRIMA Programme, supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

The summer school

The Medsal summer school is a 4-day hybrid workshop to be held from 27th to 30th June 2022, hosted by the Polytechnic University of Bari (Bari – Italy). The workshop will focus on innovative tools and methods developed in the framework of the MEDSAL project.

Scientific subjects to be addressed are structured in 4 modules, each one comprising a theoretical and a practical session where attendees are expected to actively participate in exercises, problem solving and case study analysis.

The curriculum is the result of 3 years intensive research and development carried out by a well-coordinated multi-national team of experienced scientists.

Tutors are well-established professionals in their disciplines, sharing long and in-depth experience from their involvement in numerous successful R&D projects and consultancies. Overall, this ensures a stimulating event that couples deep theoretical specialization with real-life case studies: State-of-the-art brought to practice. A workshop not to be missed!
