“Knowledge Gaps In Climate Change Research – how are you tackling it?” This is an excellent opportunity to tell the wider PhD community engaged in climate change research how your project is helping to fill gaps in the current Climate Change research arena. How are you, the postdocs and professors of the future, aiming to address these identified gaps?
We explicitly encourage papers that discuss interdisciplinary approaches, innovative methodologies, and policy application to global environmental challenges in the context of climate change in a way which is easily understandable for non-specialists.
The broad topics will reflect the four new themes of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research:
The conference is a valuable platform for PhD researchers to present their own cutting edge research. PhD researchers are at the forefront of novel research but rarely have the opportunity to independently communicate their ideas and engage with their peers. By presenting and stimulating peer-to-peer discussion, they receive critical feedback on aspects otherwise overlooked by established researchers.
This conference has an explicit interest in the practicalities of interdisciplinary research, reflecting the ethos and experience of the Tyndall Centre. Attending the conference allows researchers to broaden their knowledge around the climate change and society debate, and think outside their specialism and institute. The conference encourages collaboration with fellow PhD researchers within the same field, while enabling researchers from different disciplines to build relationships, germinating future interdisciplinary understanding and research.
This conference is free to attend (including delegate lunch and evening meals), although there is no provision for travel and accommodation.
