CMCC@Ca’Foscari is the new research center on climate change of Ca’Foscari University of Venice, the result of a strategic partnership between Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change. Thanks to the sharing of resources and skills of these two organizations, CMCC@Ca’Foscari is today the most important climate research center developed by an Italian university.
It can count not only on a team of about 50 researchers and professors, but also on the technological and modeling CMCC infrastructure, including a supercomputer among the most powerful in Europe dedicated to the modeling and forecasting of future climate and to the assessment of the economic repercussions of climate change.
Based at VEGA – Venice Science and Technology Park, the multidisciplinary task force set up within CMCC@Ca’Foscari includes climatologists, economists, chemists and statisticians, who carry out national and international research on the interaction between the climate, the environment, the economy and society.
CMCC@Ca’Foscari aggregates the CMCC research groups belonging to the ECIP – Economic analysis of Climate Impacts and Policy Division and RAAS – Risk Assessment and Adaptation Strategies Division, as well as scholars of Ca’ Foscari’s Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics and Department of Economics.
Besides the numerous initiatives in the field of research, including several European projects, CMCC@Ca’Foscari is also the seat of the PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change, offered by the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice in collaboration with CMCC and the OGS, as well as of the new Master of Research in Science and Management of Climate Change, which enriches the training offer of the Ca’ Foscari Challenge School.
