Work Package 4: Strategic development and Education

The objective of this work package is to set up and carry out a strategic process that will result in a long-term Earth system modelling strategy as well as an implementation plan for Earth system modelling activities in the next round of programme-oriented research (PoF-IV). Furthermore, it is envisaged to establish an educational component, which will contribute to training of the next-generation of Earth system modellers.

 

Tasks:

  • Task 4.1: Development of an Earth system modelling strategy (2020–2040)
  • Task 4.2: Development of an Earth system modelling implementation plan for PoF-IV 
  • Task 4.3: Education

 

Expected results:

  • Long-term Earth system modelling strategy (2020–2040)
  • Implementation plan for Earth system modelling in PoF-IV (2020–2026)
  • Helmholtz Summer School on Earth System Modelling (6/2018)
  • Early career scientists with an excellent understanding of Earth system modelling
