In 2016, this International Summer School aiming at the interface of spatial epidemiology, climate and health now takes place for the 8th time. It is an advanced training course of the Institute for Innovation Transfer at the University of Bielefeld GmbH (IIT) in cooperation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Bielefeld and the Department of Geography, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.


The course addresses spatial-epidemiological approaches in the light of global climate change.
The course focuses on state-of-the-art statistical and spatial statistical modelling to health outcomes and associations with socio-ecological factors in the developing world.
We combine theoretical and lab work on statistical analysis and spatial-epidemiological modelling techniques in a trans-disciplinary approach.

Learning objectives:

After completing the course, our participants will be able to:

  • Discuss (spatial) epidemiology of health outcomes in relation to a changing climate
  • Review concepts of population projection, epidemiological and demographical transitions
  • Analyse health outcomes in low-income countries
  • Work more effectively in collaboration with other disciplines for investigating multidisciplinary problems to develop sustainable strategies for the improvement of living conditions in developing countries.
