The CD-LINKS is launching a Summer School aim ed at providing advanced training for young international scholars on integrated assessment models.
The CD – LINKS Summer School will be organized in cooperation with the Euro – Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) , and will take place in Venice , at the Palazzo Artigianelli , from 30 th June to 6 th July 201 9.
As environmental policy – making becomes increasingly informed by model simulations, it becomes crucial for researchers involved in this science – to – policy dialogue to obtain a basic understanding of how such models work, how they are developed and how to interpret their output.
The objective of the summer school is to create a community of young scholars from a broad range of disciplines, ranging from environmental and natural resource economists to energy engineers, physicists, system analyst and environmental sc ientists, interested in the topic of modelling human activities and the earth system in an integrated framework, commonly referred to as Integrated Assessment Modelling.
The school will cover the process of modelling the interaction between economic activ ities and the energy system, land use, forest and agriculture, water, and atmosphere, and whether and how these multi – dimensional implications could be aggregated or traded – off.
