We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The International Conference on Regional Climate-CORDEX 2016 (ICRC-CORDEX 2016), organised by the World Climate Research Programme, will bring together the the international community involved in regional climate research, focusing on high resolution climate information and its applications to vulnerability, impacts and adaptation and the full spectrum of potential end users of regional climate information. It will promote the CORDEX vision to advance and coordinate the science and application of regional climate downscaling through global partnerships.
A further goal of CORDEX is to build the capacity of regional climate science in developing and transition regions; great steps have been made but there is still much work to be done. ICRC-CORDEX 2016 offers a platform for further capacity development, training and knowledge exchange for developing nation scientists together with the opportunity to expand existing, or build new, collaborations.
IES scientist Alessandro Dosio will be participating.
