EUPORIAS Climate Services Masterclass 2016
CLIMATE SERVICESCLIMATE SERVICES
Climate services involve the production, translation, transfer, and use of climate knowledge and information for decision making, policy and planning. The provision of climate information (observational, forecasts or projections) in a way that is relevant to climate-sensitive users, can inform decisions and can reduce the risk of misinterpretation. MASTERCLASS
16 - 20 MAY 2016, BOLZANO/BOZEN, ITALY
Building on the success of the first EUPORIAS Climate Services Masterclass in 2015, we are pleased to welcome registrations for the second climate services masterclass this coming spring.
This is a one-week event for early career scientists from any discipline and for representatives of the public and private sectors with an interest in climate related issues from seasonal to longer time scales.
During this interdisciplinary masterclass, participants will get to discuss the latest advances in climate services with some of the leaders in the field and be inspired by speakers from disciplines as diverse as data visualisation and psychology. Supported by experts and working in teams, students will also be challenged by real users of climate information to develop a prototype climate service for them, building on the knowledge and skills shared during the masterclass.
Masterclass dates: 16 - 20 May 2016, Bolzano/Bozen, Italy
Application deadline: 29 April 2016
