Objectives of the meeting The Geosciences formation at the faculty of Science – Lebanese University is based on a strategic development plan running from 2013 till 2020. Two stages have been already realized to accompany bachelor and Master Degrees in Geosciences. An international consortium (stage I) and a technology platform (stage II) support the curricula in both theoretical and training courses. This year, the field course in semester 6 was performed in Cyprus with the scientific coordination of Cyprus Geological Survey Department. 34 students were mobilized to Cyprus for two weeks with professors from Lebanese University, L-NCSR, ENSG-France, CGSD - Cyprus. A number of partners supported the field course: L-NCSR, BMO-AUF, MEA, Total Cyprus, IF-Cyprus, IRD and Cyprus University.
The present meeting is organized

  • To summarize the outputs of the field Summer school performed in Cyprus
  • To build on the field experience to have an appropriate continuity of the formation in the Regional Master Degree in Geosciences organized by the Faculty of Science, launched in September 2016 and financially supported by the AUF
  • To organize specific actions for the implementation of the International Mixt Laboratory LMI with our partners to support the phase 3 for research development of the geosciences program at the Faculty of Science – LU
