About this event
The Summer School 2023: Mastering the Development of Climate Services will be hosted in Vigo, Spain, and co-organised by the University of Vigo, WEMC, World Meteorological Organisation, and Inside Climate Services srl.
You will learn about the importance of climate services for the energy and water sectors, understanding recent policy, scientific and technological developments. You will acquire theoretical and technical knowledge about seasonal forecasting and climate projections, and also understand the principles of service co-production and good practices for service delivery. As part of the training, you will have a practical assignment to develop a particular aspect of the service value chain, working in small teams to develop a mini-climate service. Hearing from leading experts, you will learn about real-world applications of climate services and best practice approaches.
The Summer School will consist of three full days and two half days of lectures, group work and panel discussions throughout the week. You will hear from leaders in the energy, water and meteorology sectors. Members of the Scientific Committee include Alberto Troccoli (WEMC), Juan A. Añel (University of Vigo), Roberta Boscolo (WMO), Sue-Ellen Haupt (NCAR), and Laurent Dubus (RtE).
