Home The Coastal Ocean Environment Summer School in Ghana is an international collaboration aimed at building capacity in oceanographic and environmental sciences in Ghana. A long-term goal of the school is to increase the presence of African scientists at international science meetings. Summer schools have been held in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Pending successful funding efforts, we will continue to hold summer schools in 2019 and beyond. We are working on building links with institutions in other African countries, and on incorporating research partnerships into the summer school.
