Training school on measuring greenhouse gases in agricultural systems

The Network NUEVA (Network for Updating Emission Values in Agriculture) ( and the COST Action LivAGE ( organize a training school in Lugo (Spain) during 28-29 March 2019 (University of Santiago de Compostela, Lugo site). 

The aim of the training school is to offer comprehensive decision making criteria to identify the best measurement techniques in different research scenarios and practical demonstration of the use of a range of measurement techniques. The program involves two sessions dealing with both animal and agro-forestry systems in which an introductory talk will be followed by practical demonstration of a range of measuring techniques. 

The training school is limited to 20 trainees that will receive funding to cover traveling and accomodation costs.  

Those interested please send email to David Yanez-Ruiz ( and Salvador Calvet ( explaining reasons to enrole in the course before 20th February. Selected participants will be notified by the end of February.
