Description:
    This one day conference will present key findings of the CLAMER project, including:

    • Results of the pan-European public poll, conducted to investigate public views and understanding about climate change and the marine environment
    • Main messages from a state-of-the-art overview of EU research results on marine climate change, which summarizes all existing scientific outputs

    Leading experts in climate change science and related mitigation and adaptation strategies will be given the floor, among them Prof. Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The conference will be chaired by Quentin Cooper, presenter of ‘The Material World’ on BBC Radio 4, the UK's most-listened-to science programme.
    A detailed programme will be available soon.
