International MARSOLUT and LIFE REWAT Autumn School - 3rd Edition

Digital water management and water-related agroecosystem services: geostatistics, hydroinformatics and groundwater flow numerical modelling

October 12th— November 23rd 2020 --- Online course

The Institute of Life Sciences of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa – Italy) organises the third edition of the Autumn School Digital water management and water-related agroecosystem services: geostatistics, hydroinformatics and groundwater flow numerical modelling. The School was born as a two-weeks long full-immersion Summer School, an activity foreseen in the EU LIFE REWAT (sustainable WATer management in the lower Cornia valley through demand REduction, aquifer Recharge and river REstoration; http://www.liferewat.eu) project co-financed by the European Union.

Because of the COVID-19 emergency, it is turned in an Autumn School as 40-hours on-line course. This year the School is run within the framework of the EU MSCA-ITN MARSOLUT project (https://www.marsolut-itn.eu/ ). MARSoluT - Managed Aquifer Recharge Solutions Training Network - is a four-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Commission. MARSoluT intends to tackle specific technical challenges in the operation of Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) sites on a scientific basis,

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT; sensors and software use) are nowadays widely used in order to monitor water infrastructure operations and to monitor quantitative and qualitative status of the groundwater resource. Taking steps from the MARSOLUT and LIFE REWAT activities, the Autumn School aims at proposing innovative ideas on water resource management by focusing on the concept of water-related agro-ecosystem services and on nature-based solutions. Digital tools (software applications) will constitute the main pillar of the Autumn School, aiming at preparing the participants to develop the skills for dealing with the management and analysis of water-related spatial data by using state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technologies.

 The Autumn School is designed for early career scientists (PhD students or post-doc), with a degree in engineering, environmental sciences, earth sciences, agricultural engineering, physics, mathematics, informatics. Twelve positions are reserved to the Early Stage Researchers/PhD of the MSCA - ITN MARSOLUT project. Nine positions are reserved to European Union students and nine positions are reserved to African students.

As the Autumn School will be held in English, applicants must have an advanced knowledge of the English language. Because of the need of keeping ICT applied laboratory small, enrolment must be limited to a maximum of 30 participants.
