Advanced Courses 2012

CBA is organizing a new set of advanced courses to be held during 2012. The goal of the courses is the same as the ones that were held during 2011. These Courses are of high interest in the formation of students enrolling in the first year of the Doctoral Programmes in Biology (University of Lisbon), Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution (University of Lisbon and University of Porto) and Biology and Ecology of Global Changes, for whom they are free. The Courses can also be attended by post-graduate students of other Doctoral Programmes or master students in Biology and related areas, and others with basic adequate formation  (e.g. 1st cycle in Biology or related areas).
Details of each Course, including calendar, programme and inscription details are found by clicking the respective course name in the table below.
