2020 ECORD and NESSC Summer School: "(Past) Climates and the Earth System"

The Netherlands Earth System Science Center (NESSC) has hired a large number of PhD students over the past year, some of which would normally benefit from the USSP program that is on hiatus for 2020.

NESSC and also ECORD have requested organization of a summer course for 2020, to accommodate this generation of NESSC students and this years' applicants to ECORD summer schools.

The newly created Urbino Climate Center will support the school and the infrastructure (both in terms of accommodation and logistical flows).

This one-year school will be organized and directed by Clara Bolton (Cerege, Aix-en-Provence), Simone Galeotti (University of Urbino) and Appy Sluijs (Utrecht University).

The course will focus on several NESSC themes, notably regarding tipping points and future climate change.

This ad hoc course will have about 40-45 students, and a significant component of these will be NESSC or ECORD-sponsored participants.
The school will likely be able to accommodate another 15-20 spots for additional students to addend.

The course will be approximately 2 weeks long, and take place in the second half of July 2020.

As soon as we have additional information about the organization, content and time line, and how to apply to participate, the information will be posted to this site. So visit us again soon!

Contact information will be available soon!
