E-Learning

The rationale behind the IRIS-SES specific e-Learning activity is to offer to the stakeholder community of the MSFD, a platform where different training tools are made available with the aim of covering in the long run all key descriptors and indicators of the MSFD monitoring programme. Currently the training tools are contribution by scientists (from and outside IRIS partners) giving lectures on some of the MSFD descriptors and indicators.  Contributes are organized into the two categories, as follows:

  • Short talks (max 3 minutes of interview (video) on the theme and title indicated by the author)
  • Long lessons (max 45 minutes of power-point structured lesson with an audio record)

This page will remain active after the project completion and in close collaboration with the Lifewatch platform, will be shared and continuously implemented by other initiatives, projects, infrastructures, and JPI contributions.
