Trieste
Country: 
Italy
Dates:

This workshop will focus on the development of, and training for, a new research expertise that would lie at the interface between climate science and stakeholder application within the Climate Services framework.

The workshop will run in three parts, the first covering fundamental climate and predictability issues and the last covering specific stakeholder oriented application issues.
The central section will focus on a variety of 'cross-over' themes essential for the delivery of climate services. Extensive hand-on laboratory sessions will be organized to support the theoretical lectures.
