Climate Change Adaptation and International Trade
Baris Karapinar gives a presentation at the 10th International NCCR Climate Summer School on "Climate Change, Extremes and Ecosystem Services".
The NCCR Climate, Switzerland's centre of excellence in climate and climate impact research, invites young scientists to join leading climate researchers in a scenic Swiss Alpine setting for keynote lectures, workshops and poster sessions on the occasion of the 10th NCCR Climate Summer School 2011.
The topics covered at the NCCR Climate Summer School 2011 will include:
- Ecological implications of climate change and weather extremes
- Ecosystem services and climate change: forests, grasslands and croplands
- Food security: coping with climate change in agriculture
- Global land and water use in a changing climate
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 present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.
The Summer School is open to young researchers (PhD students and Post-Docs) worldwide. Participation is highly competitive and will be limited to a maximum of 70. The registration fee (1200 CHF) includes half board accommodation, excursion and teaching material.
ThinkSwiss, an initiative promoting exchanges between the U.S. and Switzerland, offers grants covering the registration fee (1200 CHF) of the NCCR Climate Summer School. These grants are only available for U.S. citizens or students at U.S. universities.
