The ReSToRE Summer School aims to nurture an interdisciplinary and experiential learning environment for geoscientists and social scientists to address cross-cutting topics and to create a network for all participants and contributors. Through a mix of lectures and participant-led workshops, as well as a vibrant social programme, up to 50 participants from around the world and a huge variety of disciplines come together to learn from each other and debate these pressing issues. Distinguished mentors facilitate the workshops, while taking part in the discussions, and contributing to the topics and debates by sharing knowledge and experience.

Travelling to Ireland:
Dublin is served by Dublin International Airport, which is located north of Dublin City Centre (roughly 14 km from the city centre; 17 km from UCD).
If travelling by car, arriving by ferry either from France or the UK is an option. However, it is considerably more expensive and time consuming. Dublin port receives ferries from Liverpool and Holyhead in the UK and from Cherbourg in France. Rosslare port (South-east Ireland) receives ferries from Fishguard and Pembroke in the UK and Dunkirk, Le Havre, and Cherbourg in France.
Travelling to UCD:
The University College Dublin (UCD) Belfield Campus is located roughly 7km south of Dublin City centre. There are a number of public transport options for travelling to UCD either if arriving at Dublin Airport or Dublin Port.
