Partnering with Climate Researchers: Swedish Climate Symposium

As an effort to connect researchers at Swedish universities and authorities, MERGE and BECC proposed a national conference on climate research to be conducted in collaboration with the Bolin Centre for Environmental Research of Stockholm University and the Swedish Meteorological Institute (SMHI).

A grand opening with the presence of her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Sweden, a plenary with IPCC-authors (AR6 reports) and 15 parallel sessions covering everything from fundamental science, impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems, governance and economy, mitigation and adaptation, to justice and legitimacy, and a day devoted to the interaction between academia and society, made the conference a success. Given the success, the symposium will be held every second year, next coming up in May 2024.
