A one-year international Master Programme to train new experts that will contribute in facing the challenge of climate change. A prestigious partnership between Ca’Foscari University of Venice and CMCC.

Ca’Foscari University of Venice and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) have launched a new Master Programme in Climate Change Science and Management targeted at international students with experience or interest in dealing with scientific and socioeconomic aspects of the urgent global challenges posed by global warming. The programme builds on the 10-year unique experience of the PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change, pioneered by Ca’ Foscari and CMCC in collaboration with Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS).

“The integration with the well-established PhD programme and the interdisciplinary approach of the Master offer students the opportunity to navigate in just one year the complexity of climate change, getting to learn the up-to-date scientific knowledge and some of the most important tools for policy analysis”, said Carlo Carraro, Director of the PhD programme.

This one-year master prepares experts who can:

  • Understand and explain the physical and economic nature of climate change
  • Assess the impacts, socio-economic effects, and uncertainties related to climate change
  • Evaluates the socio-economic implications of mitigation and adaptation policies
  • Apply interdisciplinary concepts, methods, and tools to analyze and design innovative climate policy solutions and transformational pathways in the context of sustainable development.

The programme has connections with an extensive network of research institutes, consultancy agencies, and international organizations where students can conduct their internship.

The application deadline for the Programme is July 15th, 2018.
