Future Earth and the Global Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA) are accepting applications to participate in their upcoming scientific workshop. This workshop, which is co-sponsored by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is titled “Integrating science across the IPCC on climate risk and sustainable solutions: Lessons learnt from AR5 to support AR6.” It will run from 29 to 31 August 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The workshop will bring together 70 international researchers from across the scope of all three Working Groups of the IPCC. Its goal is 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.
The Future Earth-PROVIA-IPCC workshop is open to highly qualified scientists, early career climate scientists and experts with experience in or knowledge of the IPCC process. Interested participants must fill out an application, including a short proposal presenting their motivation and potential contribution to the workshop. The deadline for applications is 21 June.
