HS Academy 1st Training Camp in Burgos, Spain

Organized by CENIEH, IPERION HS Academy held the first Training Camp in Burgos (Spain) on July 11-15th, 2022.

The 1st HS Academy Training Camp introduced the participants to the cutting-edge tools for materials characterization and dating applied to Paleontological and Paleoanthropological heritage. During the five intensive days of lectures and hands-on experience based on a problem‐solving approach, trainees had the opportunity to learn how to use different methodologies to delve into the most relevant dating techniques (Electron Spin Resonance, Optically Stimulated Luminescence, Paleomagnetism, Uranium-series) and materials characterization (nano and micro-computed tomography).

Here you can watch a short video about the 1st HS Academy Training Camp experience.
