Wine production in the Pyrenees and hungry caribous and why it matters

Have a Pint of Science!

Isadora and Dragana from Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) will talk about new trends in climate change adaptation and innovation. The Pint of Science festival aims to deliver interesting and relevant talks on the latest science and research in an accessible format to the public, mainly across bars and pubs.

Isadora will talk about how and why forecasting the weather is important. The current trend of wine production in the Pyrenees, as a consequence of global warming, is only one of the examples Isa will use to demonstrate how to adapt to climate change and the full potential of computer modelling in tackling the challenges of tomorrow’s life on Earth.
