“The spring university on ecosystem services modelling was a great professional experience. We learned state-of-the-art modelling skills as well as a new conceptual framework for ecosystem services evaluation. The course content was challenging with plenty of information, and the programme was stimulating with a mix of lectures and group work for practicing modelling skills and building Bayesian networks. The ARIES team is very friendly and offers complementary skills, so that every questions are clearly answered. All of this in the lively Bilbao city surrounded by a beautiful coastline and mountains” Anthony K., Département des sciences du bois et de la forêt, Université Laval, Québec, Canada
