Target Group

Each summer school is planned for about 40 participants from various disciplines covering the natural and social science. The summer school are envisioned as a mixture of early career and young scientists as well as established scholars.

For the young scientists, the focus will be on PhD and postdoctoral students from African and Germany institutions. Because our topic has a strong sustainability and development orientation, we will also include some policy makers, practitioners and local level people.
