12th - 13th December 2017: Universities and Climate Change: The Role of Climate Change Research and Projects in Fostering Climate Action, London, United Kingdom

Structure of the Event

The Symposium will be organised around two main strands: 

Strand 1: the poster displays 
Participating universities will be able to put-up poster displays describing their works and projects and to distribute the relevant information to the participants. The posters will be the backbone of the event and will allow close, one-to-one contacts between the participants and the exhibitors.

Strand 2: the presentations 
A set of presentations, divided into two main sections will be organised, dealing with issues of strategic value in reviewing the state of the art of research on climate change today. These are:

Session 1: Research on Climate Change Mitigation

Session 2:  Research on Climate Change Adaptation

Submitted papers will be structured around these two main sessions.


The Symposium will be held on 12th and 13th December 2017.
