Second and Third IS-ENES3 Virtual School on Climate Data Use for Impact Assessments, 19-21 May 2021

Publish Date: Mar 29, 2021

Deadline: Apr 16, 2021

The aim of the School is to help researchers make better use of available climate data and knowledge, in order to produce higher quality research outputs and services. This, in turn, will help to combat and adapt to climate change. Other aims are to develop a network of researchers who can turn to each other in the future for advice and cooperation. Researchers from the IS-ENES consortium will interact directly with the participants. Through the schools, the IS-ENES consortium intends to make its knowledge available for scientists all over Europe.


The two schools will be organized as a virtual course with online sessions during six weeks combined with self-study and case studies in small groups.

The dates are the following: 

- Spring School : from the 2nd of March to the 16th of April, 2021

- Summer School : from the 19th of May to the 25th of June, 2021

The total length of the Spring School is six to seven weeks, including one week holiday in the Spring school. In the first three weeks, 2-3 hour virtual meetings with lectures will be held on Wednesday mornings and Friday mornings. Interactive lectures on climate models, data, impact modelling and climate services are provided. During the last three to four weeks participants will work on their own case study in groups of 2-3 persons. During these weeks, teachers from IS-ENES will be available for questions and help. In the week of Easter, no sessions will take place.

The target groups of this virtual School are climate scientists, Vulnerability, Impact and Adaptation (VIA) researchers and people working as climate services providers. We aim to create a mix of these different disciplines so that participants will learn from each other. As a result, climate scientists will better understand what kind of outputs VIA researchers need. VIA researchers will learn how to use the products of climate science in an effective and valid way. Participants can be PhD students, Postdocs, professionals, consultants, including climate services providers. An MSc in the natural sciences is required for fruitful participation.
