Start date: 9 June 2024
End date: 12 June 2024
Time: 00:00 - 00:00

SPARCCLE researchers participated in the What Works Climate Solutions Summit, a high-level conference for evidence-based climate policy that took place from 9–12 June, 2024.

SPARCCLE coordinator Edward Byers at ETH Zurich

Start date: 1 May 2024
End date: 2 May 2024
Time: 00:00 - 00:00

SPARCCLE coordinator Edward Byers visited ETH Zurich to discuss model developments that will contribute to the SPARCCLE modelling framework. They discussed the MESMER climate model emulator, emulator contributions to the forthcoming IPCC 7th Assessment, and climate damages and risk assessment using the CLIMADA model.

Cross-Sectoral ISIMIP-PROCLIAS Workshop

Start date: 22 April 2024
End date: 26 April 2024
Time: 00:00 - 00:00

Several SPARCCLE researchers took part in the ISIMIP-PROCLIAS Cross-sectoral climate impacts workshop held at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts Research from 22-26th April 2024. The event brought together over 100 researchers working on climate impacts modelling, who presented their latest research and coordinated plans for forthcoming modelling exercises. A key focus of the meeting discussions was to best position the climate impacts modelling community for supporting the forthcoming IPCC 7th Assessment Report, with a particular emphasis on Working Group 2 (WG2) on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability.

EGU 2024

Start date: 14 April 2024
End date: 19 April 2024
Time: 00:00 - 00:00

SPARCCLE researchers participated in the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2024 conference, presenting research on climate change, risk and resilience, energy, citizen science, and more.

PEER Climate Action Webinar

Date: 21 February 2024
Time: 00:00

SPARCCLE Project Coordinator, Edward Byers from IIASA, gave an overview of the project at the PEER Climate Action Webinar. The Partnership for European Environmental Research (PEER) Climate Action network hosts regular webinars on climate research, with this specific event focused on climate risk assessment.

Representation of adaptation and maladaptation in integrated assessment models (IAMs)

Date: 22 January 2024
Time: 00:00 - 00:00

In a virtual workshop on 22nd January 2024, titled Representation of adaptation and maladaptation in integrated assessment models (IAMs) and attended by over 50 online participants, critical discussions unfolded about the integration of climate impacts and adaptation strategies in integrated assessment modelling.

Stakeholder Meeting

Date: 27 November 2023
Time: 00:00

Researchers from SPARCCLE met with colleagues at the European Central Bank and Network for Greening the Financial System to share knowledge on methodologies for climate stress test scenarios. ECB/NGFS is a key stakeholder for the SPARCCLE project and the development of stress test scenarios in SPARCCLE aims to inform on both transition and physical climate risks for Europe, in line with best practices.

16th IAMC Annual Meeting

Start date: 14 November 2023
End date: 16 November 2023
Time: 00:00
Location: Venice, Italy

Approximately 15 researchers involved in SPARCCLE attended the 16th Annual Meeting of the Integrated Assessment Modelling Consortium (IAMC) in Venice, Italy.
