The 7th Summer School of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology 2011 was focused on contamination of the Arctic ecosystems, transport, fate and effects of pollutants in the cold environments. The key scientific lectures were given by the invited experts from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Switzerland, and by the RECETOX researchers. Out of 56 participating students from 32 countries, 9 got a support from the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention and 5 from the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic in support of the capacity building for the Global Monitoring Plan under the Stockholm Convention.

The program included intensive laboratory training, as well as a field trip to the Košetice observatory, the station of the European Monitoring and Evaluation Program where the integrated monitoring of POPs has been on-going since 1998.

The summer school was organized in cooperation of the Regional Centre for capacity building and transfer of technology in the region of Central and Eastern Europe with the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention and the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic. The Summer School was also supported by the CETOCOEN project of the European Operational Program Research and Development for Innovations.

“The most valuable from my point of view were the practical lectures”, said Aliya Aubakirova from Kazakhstan. “It would be great to establish the long-term programme that would give a chance to more students to experience this. I wish I could study my Ph.D. here.”
