The GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences, organises annually
International Training Courses on 'Seismology and Seismic Hazard
Assessment'
http://www.gfz-potsdam.de/en/centre/education-and-training/seismology/
The training courses provide theoretical fundamentals and practical
training in applied seismology, for geoscientists and engineers from
earthquake-prone developing countries. The program is particularly
useful for seismological station and network operators, data
interpreters and those concerned with seismic zoning and hazard
assessment. These postgraduate courses are part of the educational and
training program of the GFZ Potsdam, the Federal Foreign Office of
Germany, UNESCO, and UNISDR in the field of geosciences and disaster
mitigation.
The 4-week training course 2019 will take place in Germany at the GFZ
Potsdam, from August 12 to September 6. We invite young scientists and
engineers from developing countries to apply to the course. The course
circular, scientific programme and application form for the course 2019
can be downloaded from our web page.

Starting with this year there is an important extension for further
qualification available. Former course participants can apply for
additional support from the International Training Course by submitting
a project proposal. The proposed project can be connected to new
measurements, or to analyse older data, or it can involve a specialised
training at the GFZ. The target of the proposal has to be related to the
topics of the International Training Course.
