Participation of CLIM-RUN to the 2nd International Conference on Climate Services in Brussels. 5,7-9-2012
Peter Schmidt, PIK, Germany
The second international conference on climate services (ICCS) will be held in Brussels from 5th to 7th September 2012. After the first conference last year in New York where the climate services partnership (CSP) was established, this years’ event will focus on how to facilitate the development of an International Climate Services Enterprise (CSE). The goal of such an innovative institution is to better support decision making processes in public administration and private business through the provision of scientific information. Key issues to be explored throughout the conference are related to the role climate services plays for different societal actors and sectors (finance, energy, agriculture, and food and water).
From the CLIM-RUN energy work package, IC3 and PIK will participate in the conference. Among others, the relevance of climate services for the renewable energy sector will be highlighted and results from the energy case study workshops will be presented during the poster session.
CLIM-RUN co-ordinator Paolo Ruti will also participate, together with UEA.
