External training and teaching
We understand that it is our responsibility to share our expertise with our scientific peers, in particular young researchers – the next generation of archaeologists and heritage managers who shape the future of archaeology.
Several courses and modules on archaeological prospection, landscape archaeology and digital techniques – some of them compulsory – have been implemented in the “Prehistory and Historical Archaeology” programme at the University of Vienna since the foundation of the LBI ArchPro.
The Initiative College for Archaeological Prospection (IC ArchPro) is a PhD programme at the University Vienna. It was established in collaboration with the LBI ArchPro in 2011.
The IC ArchPro PhD students are research fellows connected to the LBI ArchPro, working with data and research questions related to its research programme. They are directly involved in the research of the institute by two monthly stages supporting LBI ArchPro fieldwork. The PhD fellows are also integrated within the partner consortium by respective stages at the partner institutions in relation to their specific dissertations, which focus on the combination of remote sensing, geophysics, geomatics and geology and its application to archaeological research. The interdisciplinary approach ensures a new quality of training for the PhD students due to the unique combination of theoretical and practical training in Vienna and in different European countries. The candidates are supervised by professors from Uni Vienna and academics at the LBI ArchPro and its partners.
The IC ArchPro is currently hosting fourteen associated research fellows.
LBI staff is frequently involved in teaching and organizing international external teaching events such as summer schools.
