COST Actions can share knowledge and support collaboration also through training schools. Training schools offer intensive training of up to 15 days on an Action topic, on the premises of one of the Action participants. Trainees are typically, but not exclusively, young researchers from across Europe. These schools may also cover relevant re-training as part of lifelong learning.

The 1st Training School under MOBILISE on “Digitization and Data Management Challenges of Small Collections” will take place in Sofia (Bulgaria) on the 14-15 March 2019. This activity is hosted by the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research and the National Museum of Natural History – Sofia, both units of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and has been developed in collaboration with GBIF and iDigBio and under the umbrella of CETAF and DiSSCo.
