The EPOCA Work package 16 is devoted to training with the objectives to educate young researchers (PhDs and Post Docs) in research approaches, theories and methods through local lectures, staff exchanges, secondments, research theses work and intensive training courses and workshops. Several training workshops for young scientists working on EPOCA are and have been organised, including workshops on paleo-reconstruction methods, marine carbon biogeochemistry and perturbation experiments. These workshops are open to non-EPOCA members whenever possible. PhDs and Post Docs are invited to get involved in the EPOCA school projects as part of their training to raise their skill to communicate with non-scientific audiences.
