The objective of the BC3 summer school is to offer an updated and multidisciplinary view of the ongoing trends in climate change research. The BC3 summer school is organized in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country and aims to become a high quality and excellent summer course gathering leading experts on the field and students from top universities and research centres worldwide.
This year the 2013 summer school (July 8th, 9th, 10th) entitled “Addressing Climate Change Challenges from a Multidisciplinary Perspective” will be structured similarly to IPCC (International Panel for Climate Change) assessment reports. For this purpose, we have invited researchers that can help us to better understand the biophysical part behind the economics of climate change. The course will have three main sessions/days, each of them focusing in one of the subjects of the IPCC Working Groups: climate science, adaptation and impact and mitigations of climate change. An IPCC-member scientist will be a keynote lecture for each session. After that, top leading invited speakers will cover in more detail the main key issues in the climate change research agenda.
