EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES


 The network established by MedCLIVAR has held conferences, thematic workshops, summer schools. In addition, the program has awarded 33 exchange grants and funded 8 senior scientists to visit different universities and research centers for short periods, sponsored or cosponsored scientific meetings, and every year since 2003 organized sessions during the European Geosciences Union general assembly.

ESF MedCLIVAR included the organisation and co-sponsorship of workshops/conferences that were relevant to the Mediterranean climate and MedCLIVAR objectives and that were meant to favour cooperation and integration with other initiatives. These initiatives were mainly small workshops and special events within existing conferences and meetings.
