Connecting natural, spatial, economic, and social science on Climate Adaptation

When:Th 18-01-2024 13:00 - 18:00
Where:‘t Oog (5171.0415), Linnaeusborg, Zernike Campus

The global climate is changing – global temperatures are increasing, ice glaciers are melting, the sea level is rising. We have to deal with more extreme weather conditions, long periods of drought, periods of water scarcity, or extreme rainfall and flooding. Climate change has a huge impact on our liveability, our food supply, our economy, our health and our safety.

Researchers from natural, spatial, economic, and social science of the University of Groningen and the Universities of Applied Sciences in the Northern Netherlands are working on topics related to climate adaptation. On January 18, we aim to bring these researchers together to get to know each other's research better and to look for synergies in connection to regional – and global - challenges.


Registration by invitation only.


This event will be organized by the Climate Adaptation Platform, an initiative of the Wubbo Ockels School for Energy and Climate , Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen , Noorderpoort , the Alfa College , Campus Groningen , Bbeng , the province of Groningen , the municipality of Groningen , and Global Center on Adaptation , and working in close collaboration wit h Rudolf Agricola School and the University of the North . CAP aims to connect and strengthen existing research, education and outreach initiatives on climate adaptation in the Northern Netherlands.
