Swiss Climate Research, the network of leading Swiss institutions in climate research and education, invites young scientists to join high-profile climate researchers in a scenic Swiss Alpine setting for keynote lectures, workshops and poster sessions on the occasion of the 15th Swiss Climate Summer School 2016.

SCOPE OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL

The 15th International Swiss Climate Summer School is focusing on the theme “Climate Risks – Coping with Uncertainty”. This theme has been chosen due to its paramount importance in terms of both scientific challenges and pressing societal concerns. Always with a focus on uncertainty, the specific topics include:

What is ‘dangerous climate change’?

Emergent climate risks and vulnerability

From global climate change to regional impacts

Economics of climate change and adaptation, geo-engineering

Ethical aspects, policy choices and policy making

The Summer School invites young researchers from all fields of climate research. The courses cover a broad spectrum of climate and climate impact research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All Summer School participants are expected to present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.

Lecturers for keynotes and workshops (confirmed)
