European Course on Basic Aerobiology
The Basic Aerobiology Courses have been devised as a result of the growing interest in monitoring airborne particles. The increasing number of national aeroallergen networks that have been set up has enabled scientists to compare procedures and deepen fundamentals of monitoring techniques. Consequently the need for a higher quality level of analysis and for a standardization of procedures has emerged. To the purpose, an educational program to train technicians and laboratory workers has been brought forward and was started with a series of European Courses in Aerobiology.
The first European Course was held at Krems, Austria in 1993.
The last one was held in 2015 in Rzeszowski, Poland.
Next European Basic Course will be held in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden from 17th to 24th of July 2017. Registration for the course should be at May 20th by the latest at http://bioenv.gu.se/forskning/aerobiology-basic-course.
The full participation fee is 650 EURO and will include:
– All course materials (hand-outs, certificates and consumables),
– Meals (breakfasts, lunches, dinners, “fika”)
– Excursion / social event.
