This two-day activity is intended for both microbiologists and geologists. It consists in three activities: 1) lectures by three experts in the field; 2) a visit of a field-site of geomicrobiological interest; and 3) a practical exercise for the participants. For the practical exercise, ahead of the activity, each of the three experts will propose an applied research topic in their field of expertise, along with 3-4 selected publications. Based on this, the organizers will create three groups of participants with mixed backgrounds (i.e. biologists and geologists). During the exercise part, each group will have to develop a small research project based on the propositions by the experts and considering a possible application of geomicrobiologial research. Each group will be coached by one of the experts on his particular topic, but there will also be time for discussion and inputs by the other experts. At the end of the activity, theparticipants will be asked to present the application and associated research project they have developed to their fellows.
