Programme Committee: Steve Rayner & Gideon Henderson, Oxford Geoengineering Programme; David Keith, Harvard University; Timo Goeschl, Heidelberg University
Background and purpose of this year’s school:
Research into proposed geoengineering techniques and the governance issues associated with them is gaining attention in academia and beyond. This summer school will provide early career researchers with information on the current state of developments in the field and with a focus on communicating research to the public and to policy-makers.
As well as connecting early career researchers with leading academics in the field, the School will provide a venue for developing collaborative projects on many of the pressing issues in the field through interdisciplinary discussions. Participants will be consulted prior to the school for their input into the planning of the week’s collaborative projects.
Planned activities to date:
Costs and Scholarships:
Participants are asked to contribute a £300 fee towards the cost of the summer school and will be responsible for their own travel costs. Some scholarships may be available for participants who would otherwise not be able to attend. A request for support should accompany the application in such circumstances.
The number of participants is limited. All early career researchers interested in attending must fill out a single page application form (available for download at top right panel of this page).
Applications should be sent by email to Nigel Moore:
