Master of Research in Science and Management of Climate Change

Ca’Foscari University of Venice and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) organize the 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 2nd-level Master 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 Master of Research in Science and Management of Climate Change is a 1-year programme aimed at creating experts capable of managing the complex and multi-faceted dimensions of the grand challenges posed by climate risk by integrating the scientific and socio-economic aspects in a unique programme. It prepares experts with a broad and thorough scientific background in economics, climate science, valuation techniques, and with specific modelling skills.

During this Master you will learn to understand and synthesize the biophysical and socio-economic nature of climate change, evaluate the socio-economic implications of climate change risks, and design innovative policy solutions and risk management strategies. You will acquire familiarity with a suite of methodological, analytical, statistical and modelling tools you will be able to apply in order to:

  • Explain the physical and economic nature of climate change and their uncertainty
  • Assess the socio-economic impacts of climate change, their costs and benefits
  • Estimate and manage climate change risk
  • Analyze, evaluate, and design innovative climate policy solutions
  • Assess the economic costs and benefits of mitigation and adaptation policies and projects
  • Conceive transformational pathways in the context of sustainable development
  • Synthesize and communicate the different dimensions of climate change and their uncertainties to different users.


The Master will be presented online on April 5, 2023 at 6:00 pm CEST.
