Climate research for society

The focus of this year’s symposium is climate research for society; a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to collectively reflect on and share contributions to climate science.

“Climate research plays a crucial role in understanding climate processes as well as the effects of and how we can respond to climate change. The symposium in May provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to meet and interact with current research”, says Ralf Döscher, climate researcher at SMHI and chair of the steering group for the symposium.

During the conference areas such as knowledge gaps, opportunities for collaboration, environmental and societal impacts, adaptation, mitigation as well as governance aspects will be addressed and discussed within and across sectors.

Over 200 scientific abstracts have been submitted to the symposium covering a broad scientific basis.
