Geo.X Grow Your Idea Workshop on "Climate and Water under Change"


Date: 6th November 2023

Venue: HU Berlin

Contact Person: Tobias Sauter (HU)

Dear Colleagues!
We kindly invite you to register for our Geo.X Grow Your Idea workshop  "Climate and Water under Change" on 6th November 2023 at HU Berlin. This one-day, on-site-only event will bring together researchers working on water-related topics. We are looking forward to welcome researchers working on climate change, hydrology, ecosystems, biodiversity, ecosystem services, flood and wastewater management, and water resource management, but are not limited to these topics. The aim of the event is to jointly develop new project ideas and to discuss funding opportunities. The workshop combines pitch talks, discussions and brainstorming with the aim of identifying common approaches, shareable datasets, and best practices in the respective research areas.
The workshop is organized by the ERU “CliWaC” (“Climate and Water under Change”), a transdisciplinary research initiative of the Berlin University Alliance to address water-related risks under climate change. CliWaC will bring together social and natural science as well as practical expertise from stakeholders to support the governance of mitigation and adaptation measures in response to climate change. The consortium consists of project leaders affiliated to the BUA members Freie Universität (FU) Berlin, Humboldt-Universität (HU) zu Berlin, Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, and Charité. External institutions are incorporated by joint appointments with Berlin University Alliance (BUA) members (Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research ZALF) or as external partners (Institute for Ecological Economy Research IÖW).
