Coming PRIMER and PERMANOVA+ workshops

All workshops given below are either taken by PRIMER-E personnel or their close academic colleagues, and PRIMER-E has had a role in the organisation and sanctioning of these courses. If an advertised course with firm dates is not listed here, we have no connection with it. Those given in bold type are open commercial courses for which dates are fixed and places are believed still to be available at the time of last update of this Web page. They are designed for all-comers, primarily biologists or environmental scientists, and typically attended by a mix of university and other public sector research staff, post-graduate students, and consultants and applied scientists from the public and private environmental sectors. Unless otherwise specified, please contact Lyn Shave at the PRIMER-E office primer@primer-e.com for further details of all workshops.
