Final Symposium


The Final Symposium

The Final Symposium in September 2012 comes at an important juncture: It concludes three years of research at Heidelberg University and at the same time marks the beginning of a 6-year research program on the assessment of Climate Engineering funded by the German Science Foundation – DFG. Over the course of one-and-a-half days, it will provide participants with the opportunity to review the current state of the art and to discuss the road ahead.


The Symposium will not only offer a chance to review and discuss the project outputs, but also to hear about the current thinking of leading experts on global governance and science policy regarding the pressing research needs. In addition, one session will be dedicated to allowing interaction with policy-makers. This session is designed to help participants understand where science can make a difference by helping policy-makers take informed decisions about climate engineering options, at home or internationally.
