Time for a change!
Our yearly Spring School training event has been discontinued, but don’t worry, our training efforts in digital soil mapping and international standards for soils classification and assessment have not stopped.
The Spring School is being replaced by training events and courses that focus directly on groups with similar missions to ISRIC within their countries or regions. We have enjoyed the previous Spring Schools.We made valuable contacts and learned from our participants who were mostly working at the frontiers of method development related to digital soil mapping and assessment. However, with the recent development of our Community of Practice initiative, we have decided to concentrate our training effort on the needs of this community of practitioners. These are the people who work with soil data and inventory, soil analysis and soil education in a production environment, providing reliable soil information and derived products to decision makers, environmental planners and modellers.
Of course we want to keep in touch with all our Spring School alumni. Please join our community of practice (Community of Practice | ISRIC), especially if you have moved from studying to employment. But even if you’re still studying or in an academic environment, there is a place for you within the Community of Practice, please do investigate it.
