Goethe University of Frankfurt (GU) is a large university in the heart of Europe offering undergraduate and advanced degrees in all traditional faculties. Students who study biology or ecology at the GU, receive theoretical knowledge of biodiversity, ecology, evolution, and nature conservation and practical training in the field as well as in laboratories.
However, to successfully implement projects in nature conservation, the students need also skills in project development and management, human resources, and intercultural competences, among further soft skills. By participating in the Frankfurt Spring School on Conservation Project Management, the students learn these skills from international trainers. Goethe University is one of the key player of the Frankfurt Spring School and most of the lectures take place at the Riedberg Campus.
