DRAGONSTONE 1

The first S2S-Future training event will be « Dragonstone » which will start by a week of online training from the 11th  to 15th of January 2021. The main objective of this training week is to provide you with the basic notions of Source to sink (geological arguments, physical principles and modeling). Moreover, ESRs will get an opportunity to virtually meet each other and present themselves to the network.

 

The instructors will be Sébastien Castelltort, Jean Braun, François Guillocheau et Cécile Robin. Due to the sanitary risks, the training will be held online, although it had been originally planned to be held in Ainsa (Spain). If the sanitary conditions allow, this training will be continued by the fieldwork in the south of Pyrenees from the 26th of May to the 6th of June and by additional training at the premises of the company TOTAL from the 7th to the 11th of June.

S2S-FUTURE project gathers an outstanding European research and training network of 15 PhD students, hosted at world-leading academic institutions and industrial companies, whose aim is to develop the S2S paradigm as a powerful vector for understanding sedimentary accumulations as natural resources.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860383.
