The concept of the workshop for the dummies has been tested within the former national network MarCo. The objective is for the expert in one field (modelling, population genetics, ...) to teach the others the basics required to find, understand and critically evaluate and use the results published in this field. Participants to those workshops can be students or researchers.
Whether such workshops will also be organized in the framework of the now international iMarCo is under consideration.
For example in 2013, three 2-days workshops took place Population genetics, oceanographic modelling and rules of MPAs for the dummies, in 2014 one on the use of otholit microchemistry. All included talks and practical sessions and involved about 20 participants.
