Open Life Science (OLS) is a 16-week long personal mentorship and cohort-based training for individuals who would like to develop and lead Open Research projects in their communities. OLS will open a call for mentors and project leads from EOSC RIs for their third cohort, which is expected to take place from February-May 2021. In each cohort, the participants of this program will:

This course is aimed at field ecologists, environmental scientists, climate modellers and biologists interested in improving climate models by better representing terrestrial ecosystems. FATES is a numerical terrestrial ecosystem model for use in Earth System Models (ESM) that simulates and predicts growth, death, and regeneration of plants and subsequent tree size distributions. Participants will learn about climate modelling as well as how to use the Galaxy Climate JupyterLab for running FATES experiments and compare those with observational data.

This course is for anyone with an analytical mindset interested in the usefulness and meaning of modelling of the Corona pandemic. It will enable participants to make predictions using a pre-existing systems biology model. They can hereby address What-If questions on issues like alternative governmental intervention strategies, the effect of mouth caps, and accelerated testing and vaccination, in various phases of the pandemic. Participants will be taught in groups corresponding to their prior mathematics experience (from non- to expert).
RIs currently involved: ISBE, ELIXIR
