ECORD Training

For the next generation of IODP scientist the MARUM is an important hub. At the IODP Bremen Core Repository (BCR) – one of only three IODP repositories in the world – scientists can train their abilities at an early stage of their career, and pre­pa­re for future participations in IODP expeditions. The trai­ning will be of­fe­red to ear­ly ca­re­er and es­ta­blis­hed scientists from academia and industry from all over the world in­clu­ding non-IODP mem­ber coun­tries, who are in­te­rested in sci­en­ti­fic dril­ling, aim to par­ti­ci­pa­te in a drill­ship ex­pe­di­ti­on, or app­re­cia­te high stan­dards for all kind of co­ring pro­jects. Each year the two-week sum­mer school has a de­fi­ned sci­en­ti­fic to­pic re­la­ted to the IODP sci­ence plan that is re­view­ed by va­rious sci­en­ti­fic lec­tu­res and that also dri­ves the school’s vir­tu­al ship trai­ning pro­gram. The one-week ECORD trai­ning cour­se pro­vi­des a cle­ar fo­cus on the IODP core flow procedures.

Next ECORD Training Course in 2023 and ECORD Summer School in 2022!
It has become clear that it will not be practicable to aim for a physical meeting in the spring and summer of 2021.
Because of the proven, very characteristic nature of the "virtual ship experience", with all the advantages and peculiarities of the hands-on exercises, personally meeting your course mates and lecturers, and having plenty of time for discussions at site, we also determined that a virtual course would not be feasible.
