Short summary: Two-week international training school on the effects of atmospheric nitrogen (N) on air quality, ecosystems and biodiversity  is open to PhD students and early career postdoctoral researchers of the University of Lisbon. As the Portuguese example is relevant to other Mediterranean countries and to other long-term ecological research sites, this training school will be open to a wider audience (such as the International Long-Term Ecological Research Network, ILTER). The school will provide training in a holistic approach of key aspects related to N issues under the WAGES concept (nitrogen threats to Water, Air, Greenhouse balance, Ecosystems and Soils), with a long-term perspective.   .....Read more in the attached file
