Applications are being accepted for the 6th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management, which will take place July 30-Aug. 3, 2018 at Penn State.
 
The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management's (SCRiM) annual summer school is designed to foster opportunities for collaboration between scholars and practitioners while providing a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.
 
A key focus of the workshop will be developing a common vocabulary to help foster enhanced cross-disciplinary communication, catalyzing the potential for future research and decision support collaborations. Participants will also gain hands-on experience with key methods and tools including: 
  • use of simple models in a transdisciplinary framework
  • analysis of relevant datasets
  • values-informed robust decisionmaking
This program is targeted at all postdocs, advanced graduate students, and early-career professionals in the decisionmaking and policy communities who are working on issues related to climate risk. Potential candidates representing NGOs and state or local agencies are strongly encouraged to apply. 
 
In most cases, lodging, meals, registration, and travel costs will be fully covered for participants. International applicants are welcomed.
