COST Training Schools disseminated the outcomes of activities which were part of COST Actions or provided intensive training on a new emerging subject. They were open to early-stage and senior researchers alike. As part of the Outreach Strategy, fifteen training schools took place between March and May 2009, on a variety of topics.

Every year thousands of people suffer from extreme thermal conditions. Until now, several bioclimatic indices are used to assess the thermal environment. However, no one considers complex relationships that occur between the human organism and the atmosphere.

COST Action 730 has developed a new Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) that can be used in many applications. This training school focused on the principles and operational use of the new developed index UTCI to a wide group of young researchers from various countries and institutions.
