The Environmental Hydraulics Institute of the University of Cantabria (IHCantabria) held, on 19-21 December 2016, the 1st workshop of the TROYO project, an ERASMUS + European Union’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe.
TROYO (Training of Youth for Preparedness against Marine Induced Hazards) is organized to train youth on the marine hazards through innovative and scientific tools and methods. The training program will enhance knowledge and awareness of selected young people in the marine hazards and enable them to acquire new methods of preparedness against marine hazards and transfer the acquired knowledge directly to younger people through training activities.
During the workshop, partners discussed and drew conclusions on the training activity held last summer in Marmaris (Turkey), where 28 students from 8 European countries were trained on marine hazards and related risks. In addition, next steps were agreed in order to produce a guidebook for teachers and to establish the criteria for the “training of younger by trained youth” activity in the schools.
The partners involved in this project are:
- Middle East Technical University (METU), Turkey
- The Environmental Hydraulics Institute from the University of Cantabria (IH-UC), Spain
- The Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA), Portugal
