Devotes summer school



15th to 17th July 2014

Devotes Summer School

Aquarium of Donostia- San Sebastián (Spain)


From Species to Ecosystems:
Modelling Marine Ecology for Management Applications


Director: Dr. Angel Borja, AZTI-Tecnalia (Spain). Coordinator of the European 7th FP DEVOTES project (Development of innovative tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good environmental status).


Objectives: This is the 11th AZTI’s Marine Research Division Summer School and the second one organized within the European FP7 project “DEVOTES” (Development of innovative tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good environmental status), in which most of the teachers of this Summer School are involved. As in previous years, we want that attendees can acquire new knowledge on recent trends in marine research, related to management of our oceans.


This Summer School will explore the potential and recent advances in the use of marine modelling (some of them developed in DEVOTES), at different scales (from species to ecosystems), in management applications, including scenarios of climate change.


Hence, the main objective of the school is to give an overview on the marine modelling to ocean and coastal management, with a closer view to the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), especially in descriptors such as: biodiversity, fishing, food-webs and seafloor integrity.


Dates: 15th to 17th July 2014


Venue: Aquarium of San Sebastián (Spain)
