Joint Summer School - Living Ocean Lab

The IMBRSea Joint Summer School is an annual event that unites students and teachers to collaborate on specialised research topics at an established European marine research station. The focus is on both developing scientific knowledge and on creating a beneficial integrative experience for students and teachers alike.

The IMBRSea joint school takes place in summer (July-August), after the first year of the programme, at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences in Tjärnö (Sweden). The joint school takes 10 days. 

During the joint school students work in small groups conducting research on specific themes. Students gain valuable research and transferable skills, with each group preparing the following:

  • Research proposal
  • Experimental design and research
  • Data analysis
  • Report
  • Presentation
  • Documentary movie & blog

During your first semester you will choose one of the two editions of the summer school to attend. Students that goes to University of Bergen on their third semester will have to attend the first edition of the summer school.
