2015 ARIES ecosystem services modeling course

Recommended Posts

The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) in collaboration with

Conservation International, the University of Vermont and Earth Economics,

is announcing the 2015 edition of the International Spring University on

Ecosystem Services Modeling, held from April 7-17, 2015 in Bilbao, Spain.

More details are available at:



is currently open at the above link, until December 26.


The International Spring University on Ecosystem Services (ES) Modeling is

the third edition of an annual 2-week intensive course that aims to build a

new generation of actors, in research, policy and management, who can

profitably use ecosystem services models to address and solve

sustainability problems. In its successful first two editions, in the

Spring of 2013 and 2014, a large number of applications were received, from

professionals in the field, academics and governmental actors.


The course follows a problem-based paradigm, in which advanced Ecosystem

Services modeling techniques are learned from both theoretical discussion

and practice.


During two weeks of intensive instruction, participants learn how to

effectively model ES problems of different scope and scale using a

high-level modeling language that supports the integration of different

modeling paradigms. ES and IT experts from around the world will help the

participants to independently create, run and analyze Ecosystem Services

models and scenarios.


We aim for the school to become a primary source of hands-on instruction on

Ecosystem Services assessment. We are opening applications for 25

participants. Scholarships will be available to cover travel and tuition

for up to 5 participants.
