Copernicus Climate Data Store Face-to-Face Training Event
To kick off the 1st CAFE School, the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica is pleased to host a face-to-face event in Barcelona on 13th November 2019, in collaboration with the CAFE partner ECMWF.
The Copernicus Climate Change Service * (C3S) User Learning Services (ULS) provide learning resources and events to support those who need to use climate data to assess climate change impacts. Past, current and future climate data are accessed via the Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS). In the CDS you can find quality assured, free of charge climate information. The CDS provides an extensive collection of climate datasets, easily searchable through a catalogue. In addition, an online toolbox allows users to build workflows and applications suited to their needs.
The C3S ULS uses a blended training approach. This is based on individual self-paced learning, using online resources available on the ULS Learning Experience Platform, combined with a full day face-to-face training event. Expert trainers guide participants through the full day training, discussing complex concepts encountered during the self-paced study and helping participants to apply their acquired knowledge to practical case studies. Targeted audiences include graduate students in related topics, researchers from academia and practitioners from industry who would like to explore how climate data can benefit their work in areas such as agriculture, biodiversity, water management, risk analysis etc.
* The Copernicus Climate Change Service implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of the European Commission.
