Call for Application for the next FERS course will open on May 27th!

Call for application for the course on ‘Law, finance, and litigation: addressing climate change risks in Europe’ will be open from  27/05/2024 to 28/06/2024.

Don’t miss the opportunity to gain skills on one of the most advanced challenges of our times, to meet experts bringing experience from outstanding international institutions, and to become part of a global community.

The CMCC Foundation, with the financial support of the Emilia-Romagna Region, launched the fifth course of “Future Earth Research School” (FERS), an international school entirely focused on environmental sustainability and climate change.

The course “Law, finance, and litigation: addressing climate change risks in Europe” will take place in Bertinoro (Italy) from 7th-18th October 2024.

Climate change is a major threat to human well-being and in this sense, legal frameworks and socio-political arrangements have addressed the adverse effects of climate change through norms, financial mechanisms, and litigation.

Against this background, the fifth FERS course will provide an overview of the legal instruments and financial mechanisms aimed at regulating climate change, its risks and future consequences in Europe. Participants will explore the international and European climate legal framework and the role of national and regional adjudicatory bodies in advancing climate action.

The course will also focus on financial arrangements and related obligations both at the international level and within the European Union, exploring how these mechanisms can affect decision-making processes.

Participation is open to Ph.D. students, young researchers, and professionals. The maximum age at the time of application is 35 years old. The school offers a limited number of fellowships, based on the applicant’s needs.

The deadline for application is 28 June 2024.
