This summer, from 30 June to 6 July, there will be a week-long summer school launched by IIASA's CD-Links Project.

ENE's Program Director Keywan Riahi and Deputy Program Director Volker Krey will be giving lectures throughout the week and serving as chairs during student presentation blocks.

Topics that will be covered by this summer school include:

  • History of the Integrated Assessment modelling of human activities and the earth system
  • Past socio-demographic trends and implications for energy: future major trends
  • Overview of land use, agriculture and food
  • Overview of the modelling of impacts of climate change
