Initiative Location: Germany

Time Frame: Ongoing

Description:

The “Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science” (MarDATA) is a graduate school, financed by the Helmholtz Association. It aims to define and educate a new type of “marine data scientists” by introducing and embedding researchers from computer sciences and mathematics into ocean sciences, covering a broad range from supercomputing and modelling, (bio)informatics, robotics, to statistics and big data methodologies. Researchers from the German leading institutes for marine research, the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Alfred-Wegener-Institute (AWI) Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, will jointly educate and supervise doctoral (PhD) candidates together with information & data science specialists from their partner universities in Kiel (Kiel University) and Bremen (Universität Bremen and Jacobs University). The broad education in joint block courses, international summer schools and colloquia will go beyond a single discipline towards genuine scientific insight into and a more systematic treatment of marine data.
