Capacity Building Lectures

Considering the current COVID-19 situation, SCOSTEP is holding online lectures for capacity building of students and young scientists. These online lectures will provide both basic background and an introduction to the latest scientific topics of solar-terrestrial physics to students and young scientists of all countries.  Their duration will be one hour and presented by one speaker. The first half will be a tutorial-like session giving basic background on a topic, mostly oriented at students. After a short break, we will follow with the latest research or hot topic in the same subject accessible to younger and senior scientists. Additional information is available here.

The next speaker in the Capacity Building Lecture Series will be Ulrich Taubenschuss from the IAP, Czechia on March 5, 2021:
