Collaboration type: Training collaboration

About: DTU, the Danish Technical University is a renowned international university, leading in technical and natural sciences. There is a strong focus on sustainability and an excellent work and study environment and cutting-edge technologies.

Short description of the collaboration & main achievements in the period: BlueBRIDGE, ICES and DTU have collaborated on the production of an online training course as an introduction to oceanography. The collaboration has entailed generation of the online course from scratch, from identifying acurricula, instructors, modules and the practicalities of putting the course together. This course is primarily aimed to be used by DTU students, especially those on a bachelor level, as an introduction to the topic of oceanography. The course will also be used by the ICES community, and the general public, as it will be openly available for all. The course is a recording which exists at all times, so it can be played at any time, and in any time zone. Thus, it is potentially a very long-lived product of the BlueBRIDGE project.

Plans for the future: The course is available here
