iDiv Summer School

The first iDiv Summer School with the thematic focus “Biodiversity Synthesis” took place from 23 to 29 August 2015. 24 participants from 16 countries received an overview of the varied iDiv research fields. In addition to an evening lecture about research opportunities in Germany, there were interesting leisure activities: a rafting tour and a visit to the “Baumkronenpfad” (Treetop Path) in Hainich National Park in Thuringia.
