Doug Wallace (TOSST Director) and Manuel Dureuil (TOSST PhD student) attended the opening of the Ocean Science Centre Mindelo on the island of Sao Vicente, Cape Verde, on 14 November 2017. Here is the Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/OSCMindelo/?fref=mentions
The OSCM is a major initiative of our HOSST partner institution, GEOMAR in Kiel, Germany as well as the Fisheries Development Institute of Cape Verde (INDP). It will support ocean science throughout the tropical eastern North Atlantic region and, most importantly, will host the next TOSST-HOSST Summer School in June, 2018 (more on that later). The photo shows the Canadian connection at the opening workshop: Manuel, Tatiana Cabral and Doug. Tatiana is a Cape Verdean- Canadian who helped with the previous Cape Verde Summer School, and is likely to assist TOSST with the planning and organization of the next one.
