Advanced Courses CBA/cE3c* 2014/2015

Centre for Environmental BiologyCBA/cE3c* is organizing a new set of advanced courses to be held during 2014-2015. The goal of the Courses is the same as the ones that were held in previous years. These Courses are of high interest in the formation of students enrolling in the first year of the Doctoral Programmes in Biology (UL), Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution (University of Lisbon and University of Porto) and Biology and Ecology of Global Changes (University of Lisbon and University of Aveiro), 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.

DBA - Department of Animal Biology, Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon
DBV – Department of Plant Biology, Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon
MUHNAC – National Museum of Natural History and of Science, University of Lisbon

The number of ECTS of each course will count for the PhD programmes involving the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. For these students the delivery of a final report is required, to develop during the weeks following the course attendance, with details provided by the teacher(s).  Each course can have a recognition of 6 (36 hours of contact) or 5 (30 hours of contact) ECTs. In the latter case the last 6 hours of the course are not mandatory and the certificate will be on 'Topics in “Name of the course”’.

* - From 2015 on CBA will give rise to cE3c - Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes - integrating groups from other R&D units, CCIAM (Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Modeling) and the "Azorean Biodiversity Group".
