Watch the trailer of the Frankfurt Spring School:

The next Frankfurt Spring School will take place from 24.02. – 20.03.2020.

The application period will be open from the 16th of September until the 1st of November 2019.


Experienced trainers and facilitators will provide you with knowledge, skills and practical experience required in the day-to-day conservation project management work.


It is the best platform to learn diverse subject matter efficiently in short course of time in interactive ambiance from multiple stakeholders.

I achieved the skills to bring my biological knowledge into the real world – putting practical use to a theoretical background, getting introduced to a very broad and complex topic via diverse approaches and different points of view.

Spring School helped me to better understand the management of conservation projects in particular on the preparation of Logical Framework and Financial and Budgeting Management.
