Summer School: A Tool for Science-Based Policy Making

Written by

The CD-LINKS project is launching a Summer School aimed at providing advanced training for young international scholars on integrated assessment models. The School will be organized in cooperation with the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and will take place in Venice, at the Palazzo Artigianelli, from 30th June to 6th July 2019. The deadline to apply is on 1 March, 2019.

As environmental policy-making becomes increasingly informed by model simulations, it becomes crucial for researchers involved in this science-to-policy dialogue to obtain a basic understanding of how such models work, how they are developed and how to interpret their output.

The objective of the summer school is to create a community of young scholars from a broad range of disciplines, ranging from environmental and natural resource economists to energy engineers, physicists, system analyst and environmental scientists, interested in the topic of modelling human activities and the earth system in an integrated framework, commonly referred to as Integrated Assessment Modelling.

Accommodation, lunches and coffee breaks are provided without charge to all participants of the school. Students of developed countries will need to cover all other expenses associated with participating in the school, such as travel, dinners and local transport. Travel expenses can be offered to applicants from developing countries.

Main criteria

  • Ideal candidates are graduate students and professionals from any university, research institute, or other organization (private companies, government agencies, NGOs) with an interest in environmental issues, integrated assessment modelling and an ability to read and write fluently in English;
  • The maximum number of students is 30.
