27–30 May 2013 | Potsdam, Germany
The Impacts World 2013 conference aims to develop a new vision for climate impacts research by laying the foundations for regular, community-driven syntheses of climate change impact analyses. It will bring together leading scientists and decision makers from local to international levels. A broad array of scientific knowledge about the impacts of climate change has been gathered over the last decades. Yet, in many respects it remains fragmentary, and a quantitative synthesis of climate impacts, including consistent estimates of uncertainties, is still missing.
27–29 May 2013 | Dresden, Germany
The CCRR-2013 conference, held in Dresden (Germany), brings together international experts to discuss the state-of-the art and future directions in regional responses to climate change impacts on natural, social and economic systems. The event includes contributions from national and international climate change and adaptation research as well as from practitioners and policy makers. Current research findings and local/regional experience and results will be presented. Suitable conference papers shall be published as special issues or a refereed anthology. Abstracts are welcome for oral presentations and posters.
29–30 May 2013 | Tallinn, Estonia

10–14 June 2013 | Borgholm, Öland, Sweden
BALTEX is a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP) within the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) of the World Climate Research Programme. From its very beginning, interdisciplinarity and international collaboration have been outstanding aspects for BALTEX. The main focus of BALTEX Phase I (1992–2003) was to explore and model the various mechanisms determining the space and time variability of energy and water budgets of the Baltic Sea drainage basin and the interactions with surrounding regions.
17–19 June 2013 | Dublin, Ireland
The Dublin Climate Gathering will bring together representatives from the worlds of technology, business, politics, and culture to work on building the clean economy – Plan C.
The purpose of this Dublin workshop is to answer the question, “how can we inspire support for a digital revolution which has a central role in delivering the new low carbon revolution?” We will work on the key civil society, political, economic and technological system changes that are needed to advance innovation in this new economy and society.
19–21 June 2013 | Oslo, Norway
Climate change is considered by many to be the greatest challenge to humanity. It is a “perfect storm” that will lead to unprecedented social and ecological impacts, unless urgent measures are taken to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to changes that are now considered inevitable. There is a growing recognition that traditional approaches and “business-as-usual” are insufficient to address the complex challenges of climate change. In fact, there have been many calls for new modes of thinking about multiple interacting processes, policies, and programs, and both scientific and policy discourses increasingly emphasize the need for deliberate transformation to address climate change.
Adaptation to Climate Change - Results and Experiences of 5 projects / clusters in 4 Interreg VIB programme areas with German participation
25 June 2013 | Berlin, Germany
D-5-4-3 – ADAPT is a national cooperation platform for German project partners of five climate change adaptation projects and clusters in four programme areas (North West Europe, North Sea Region, Baltic Sea Region, Alpine Space).
