Winter School

Climate Change in Coastal Waters: From Science to Action

This CE2COAST Winter School in Lisbon, Portugal from 13-17 February 2023 is ideal for PhD students, postdoctoral and early-stage researchers. 

Global change will have significant impacts at regional and local scales on marine and coastal systems and will influence the security and productivity of coastal services. The Winter School will provide the opportunity to learn and exchange ideas on the latest approaches in using climate change data from different modelling platforms. It will enable participants to obtain the latest techniques in analyzing climate change data to understand stressor trends, thresholds and tipping points relevant for managing coastal services. The emphasis of the Winter School is to promote optimal coastal management through the delivery of the best scientific knowledge. 

No previous modelling knowledge required.


Topics include:

  • Science and Society: co-design and co-production of knowledge;

  • Observed state, variability, and trends in coastal change;

  • Climate projections from ocean to coastal models;

  • Coastal processes and services under multiple stress;

  • Global change to local impacts;

  • Ethics in Science.

Lecturers include:

Priority will be given to applicants from European Institutions.  


There is no fee to attend the CE2COAST Winter School, though participants will be responsible for securing funding for both transport and accommodation. Participants will also be expected to bring their own laptops.

Please send a short CV and application letter stating why you would like to participate to within the deadline Monday, 28th November 2022.
