WASCAL-DE-Coop Side-event at the Tropentag 2022 in Prague

September 19, 2022

On the 14th of September 2022, the WASCAL-DE-Coop project that is based at the Department of Remote Sensing, University of Würzburg, conducted a networking workshop for the German Partners of WASCAL and interested persons of the Tropentag 2022 dedicated to research in Africa. The BMBF-funded WASCAL-DE-Coop works together with the climate research institution WASCAL (West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use) to support its 11 graduate schools distributed in 10 countries in West Africa. These graduate schools focus on various research topics in climate and land use change and are linked to more than 50 researchers in Germany.

With this side-event, WASCAL-DE-Coop fosters and strengthens the exchange of supervisors, mentors, and lecturers of the German research landscape who are already active partners of WASCAL.

We thank everybody for joining and collaborating!
