*PhD Programme in Science and Management of Climate Change (3 years)

The PhD Programme in Science and Management of Climate Change is jointly
organized by the Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the
Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC), an integrated,
multi-disciplinary frontier research center for understanding,
controlling and adapting to Climate Change.

*Objectives of the PhD*

The main objectives of this PhD Programme are to provide the job market
with experts with a broad, in-depth, scientific and socio-economic
background, as well as with a sound and innovative research experience
focusing on the dynamics of climate change, the design and execution of
numerical and mathematical models of the climate and the economy, the
methodologies and techniques for evaluation, management and assessment,
in terms of mitigation and adaptation measures and policies.


*Organisation of the PhD Programme*

The Programme is organised in two Streams:

·Dynamic climatology, at CMCC in Bologna

the University Ca’ Foscari in Venice

The programme, taught in English, lasts for three years. Twelve courses
are planned for the first academic year (available at the programme
website, in order to provide
students with the state of the art of the scientific findings related to
the two disciplinary streams. These also foresee common activities with
the objective of offering tools to build a sound scientific, managerial
and economic base for the general comprehension of the broader theme of
climate change, with the opportunity for in depth studies of specific
issues and for experiencing a multidisciplinary approach.
