Geo.X is the geoscientific skills network in the Berlin-Potsdam area. Via this platform, the partners coordinate their joint research and education in order to make relevant contributions to future issues in the Earth-Human system. Boundaries between departments are overcome and a new quality in the cooperation of engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, economic sciences and the humanities is aspired. The cornerstones of this multi-disciplinary collaboration are joint research projects, coordinated teaching, effective use of scientific infrastructure and the transfer of scientific results to the public.

Since 2012, Geo.X organizes its annual Geo.X School which focuses on teaching state-of-the-art geoscientific methods in compact courses.

The Geo.X School 2015 “Methods in Geosciences” is open to all young scientists who are looking for new methodological knowledge and skills. Participants from the Earth Sciences are invited to attend courses from a broad range of geoscientific research  methods. Each course will be oriented towards integrating theory and practical applications. The language of instruction is English.

The Geo.X School will run in the week before the GeoBerlin 2015 in Berlin and Potsdam from Monday, September 28, to Friday, October 2, 2015. Its program is organized modularly with parallel and consecutive courses.
