Paleontological research, always between biology and geology, is more and more specialized and nourishes techniques and methods, often developed by paleontologists but also inherited or inspired by other sciences. Therefore, the collaboration of the ICP and Transmitting Science SL comes in a training program aimed at PhD students and active paleontologists, as well as researchers and specialists from other disciplines closely related to paleontology.
The courses, a few days long, combine theoretical and practical classes to allow students to use what they have learned in their day to day activity. It is a dynamic program that re-edits the most requested courses while constantly designs new ones.
Soledad De Esteban Tivigno, research associate at ICP and co-founder of Transmitting Science SL, is the director of this training program that includes the participation of top international experts in each specialization.
Courses are usually held at the Museum of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont, in Sabadell (Barcelona).
