Call for applications for the next FERS school

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 fourth course of “Future Earth Research School” (FERS), an international school entirely focused on environmental sustainability and climate change.

The course “Sea level rise and coastal adaptation” will take place in Bertinoro (Italy) from 9th-20th October 2023.

Participants will learn about existing or planned adaptation strategies through case studies from various geographical locations, showcasing the complexity of their implementation, the disproportionate impacts on marginalized communities, and the importance of inclusive decision-making processes.

Sea level rise is one of the most pressing challenges posed by climate change, with significant implications for coastal communities around the world. The comprehensive course on “Sea Level Rise and Coastal Adaptation” provides a deep understanding of the causes and impacts of rising sea levels, delving into the consequences on coastal regions including intensification of extreme events, increased coastal erosion, inundation of low-lying areas and heightened vulnerability to storm surges.

Throughout the course, participants will engage in group discussions, case studies, and hands-on activities to deepen their understanding of the science of sea level and its implications for coastal adaptation.

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 applications is 15 July 2023.
