The FESSTVaL Summer School 2020 had to be cancelled due to measures to contain the Corona pandemic. We now seek for a new format for 2021 robust enough to be compatible with measures which might be still active in spring and summer 2021. The proposed format is as follows:
In the period from mid May to the end of July, we host one group of students per week (8 groups in total) with a maximum of 4 participants per week at the Meteorological Observatory in Lindenberg near Berlin. During this week, the group works on a scientific project suggested by the organising team. Results of the projects are presented within the frame of the FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminar on each Friday afternoon. Project supervisors are also on site to assist the groups. Additionally, a dedicated lecture will be given on each Monday within the frame of the FESSTVaL Lecture Series. Both, the FESSTVaL Lecture Series and FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminar are live broadcasted, recorded and open for online participation for those students not being on site. FESSTVaL Virtual Summer Seminars take place on 8 - 10 consecutive dates, once a week.
