Training Blocks

Barcelona Ocean is a joint initiative by InvestigAdHoc and researchers at the Institut de Ciències de Mar (ICM, Institute of Marine Sciences). We offer specialized training in marine sciences to professionals and researchers, graduate students and the general public. Courses are held at ICM’s facilities, located by the beach and nearby a wide range of accommodation.

Barcelona Ocean organizes the courses in three main training blocks: General Topics and Outreach, Fundamentals of Marine Sciences and Specialized Technical Courses.

The courses on the General Topics and Outreach block offer training on science communication, writing, training for primary and high school teachers, as well as courses for the general public.

In the Fundamentals of Marine Sciences block you will find courses that offer advance theoretical training in all branches of Marine Sciences. Note that these courses also include practical or hands-on sessions.

The block on Specialized Technical Courses is subdivided in three categories: Programming languages and software, Modeling, and Lab and computer methods.

We also organize courses on demand.
