COSIMENA’s summer school is a yearly event hosted in cooperation with the Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT). The event brings together master students and scholars who have finished their masters not longer than five years ago from Germany and the MENA-Region to work together on a specific academic field from different angle each year. An average of 25 participants are invited to international classrooms at the AASTMT here in Egypt, where they attend one to two weeks of training on the relevant topic. The Summer / Winter School allows a different angle to the young researchers’ respective fields since the classes are held by several trainers of different scientific disciplines as well as countries, from German universities and universities in the region. Therefore, the subjects are presented and discussed from multilateral perspectives and allow the participants to experience and familiarize themselves with the different methodologies, policies and strategies adopted in each country. Consequently, the event aim is to build academic bridges and enable international exchange to support research and academia of the participating countries.
The following fields are relevant: agriculture, food, economics, social sciences and environmental engineering.
All lectures will be conducted in English.
Participants are expected to be part of all activities taking place in the Summer School. A certificate of participation will be issued at the end of the school, provided that the participant has attended the entire summer school.
