Summer school on climate engineering
28 Apr 2012
Please note the application deadline for this summer school has now passed
The Oxford Geoengineering Programme has issued a call for applications to its Oxford Summer School on Geoengineering research, which has been organised in collaboration with partners from Harvard University and Heidelberg University.
Research into proposed geoengineering techniques and the governance issues associated with them is gaining attention in academia and beyond. The summer school aims to provide information on the current state of developments in the field and with a focus on communicating research to the public and to policy-makers.
The Summer School is the 3rd Annual Transdisciplinary Summer School on Climate Engineering, and will be held at Queen’s College, Oxford on 19-25 August 2012.
Applications are invited - before the deadline of 1 June 2012 - from any early career researchers in the field of geoengineering. Further details are available on the Oxford Geoengineering Programme website.
The Oxford Geoengineering Programme seeks to engage with society about the issues associated with geoengineering and conduct research into some of the proposed techniques. The programme does not advocate implementing geoengineering, but it does advocate conducting research into the social, ethical and technical aspects of geoengineering. This research must be conducted in a transparent and socially informed manner.
Two of the Programme’s directors recently made a successful bid for a £1.3m research project on Climate Geoengineering Governance funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
