THE MED-GOLD LIVING LAB @ Cagliari, Italy
May 25 – Jun 30 all-day

On-line training, 25 May – 20 June 2020

The MED-GOLD Living Lab is dedicated to early career scientists and professionals in the areas of climate science, agriculture, economy, social sciences and communication.

The Living Lab will be on-line for four weeks, from May 25 to June 20, with weekly interactive webinars by speakers across different disciplines and on-line working groups with multidisciplinary teams, supported by scientists from the MED-GOLD experts as mentors.

Participants will be challenged by real users of climate information to develop prototype climate services for the agri-food sector, building on the knowledge and skills shared during the event.

Early career scientists and professionals with a wide range of individual profiles are encouraged to apply and join the multidisiplinary teams: climate scientists, agronomists, software developers (R, Python), economists, social scientists, communication and visual communication experts.

Participants will learn about concepts and methodologies used to develop climate services as well as become become familiar with climate data and tools made available through the Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS).

The program of activities is available here .

The official language of the school will be English.

More information about the event and the on-line application form can be found here.

Experiences with User Interface ...
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Interaction with users has become important for the development of climate services and for the dissemination of results of many projects on climate change and climate adaptation. Besides face-to-face meetings there is also a lot of attention for user interface platforms (UIPs). However, almost all projects develop their own website for this. During this webinar 2 speakers tell what was the idea behind the set-up of their UIP, what were the challenges and whether they have the idea that they reached the users well. After the presentations we will discuss what we can learn from experiences form different projects on the interaction with users via these UIPs.


Speakers

  • Juan José Sáenz de la Torre: works as science communicator at Predictia Intelligent Data Solutions. For the PRIMAVERA-project, Predictia helped design and implement a User Interface Platform (uip.primavera-h2020.eu/) where a large range of results from the project are shown.
  • Hasse Goosen: is director of Climate Adaptation Services (CAS). CAS developed the Dutch website on spatial adaptation (www.ruimtelijkeadaptatie.nl), which gives an overview of a large range of activities and tools for climate adaptation among others the Dutch Climate Impact Atlas. He was also involved in, among others, the development of the C3S Sectoral Information System on water SWICCA.

Abstract

Filip Lefebre will present the activities of the VITO Urban Climate Service Center that is specialized in the delivery of data, tools and services to support urban areas in their ambition to become more climate resilient with a particular focus on heat related issues. The presentation will include a description of the UrbClim urban climate model and how the model results are used for multi-sectoral urban adaptation activities. Tangible results will be shown from the H2020 Climate-fit.city project, the C3S European Health project as well as from contract work for administrations and other stakeholders from different policy levels.

Carmela Apreda will present the results of the research activity conducted by CMCC REMHI Division within the URBAN-PRO Strategic Project. The study aims to investigate the effects of urban morphology on the urban microclimate by analysing the characteristics and performance of typical Euro-Mediterranean housing blocks. The presentation will include the main findings of the study which highlight a close relationship between density, geometry and air temperature distribution.

The analysis of these key factors represents an important tool for the improvement of urban design measures: by taking into account quantitative climate data in urban planning, architecture and environmental design, it supports both local authorities and practitioners to build resilient cities in a changing climate.
