The 2nd edition of the Climateurope Festival was organised in Belgrade from 17th to 19th October 2018 in order to support the exchange of knowledge and cultivate efforts for climate change adaptation and mitigation informed by science. The event brought researchers, suppliers, and funders with an emphasis on participants from Central and Eastern Europe. Varied programme was offered including lectures, discussions and networking to explore the state-of-the-art of climate information, and its uses and value in decision-making.
VISCA project was presented during the Climateurope Festival 2018 in 2 different sessions, one on the “Future of wine: Round table / Impulse talks” on October 18th and the other on “Climate information at your services I. Agriculture: Storytelling session & Round table” on October 19th.
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.
The call selected 10 ideas or projects – including VISCA - gathered in Bari & Foggia (Italy) from 7th to 10th May 2018. The winners had several training sessions and they will have the access to an acceleration or incubation process for the duration of 3 months in the selected partners’ organisations.
