Call for Applications: Future Earth-PROVIA-IPCC Workshop

The Future EarthGlobal Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA)IPCC scientific workshop will take place in Stockholm, Sweden from 29-31 August 2016. It will bring together 70 international researchers from across the scope of all three Working Groups of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The workshop is co-sponsored by IPCC. It is jointly hosted by the Future Earth Hub in Sweden and the Stockholm Resilience Centre with financial support from the IPCC, MISTRA and Stockholm Business Region.

The workshop aims to reflect on the lessons learned from the Fifth IPCC Assessment (AR5) and develop an integrated research agenda that helps mobilize the research community to produce timely, policy relevant knowledge for the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). The workshop will identify knowledge gaps and areas where international coordination of research can crucially add value. It also aims to inform the scoping for the structure and priorities of the IPCC AR6. Both a workshop report for IPCC and a peer reviewed paper will be produced.

Open Applications

In addition to speakers invited by the Scientific Committee, open seats for participation are offered to highly qualified scientists, early career climate scientists and experts with experience in or knowledge of the IPCC process.
