The PhD Programme in Science and Management of Climate Change was established in 2007, through an agreement between the Universita’ Foscari in Venice (Unive) and the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC), a consortium comprising several Italian public and private Research institutions.
Objectives of the PhD
The Programme is organised in two Streams:
Dynamic Climatology, at CMCC in Bologna
Climate change impact and management, at the Department of Economics of the University Ca Foscari in Venice
Twelve 5-credit courses are planned for the first academic year, in order to provide students with the state of the art of the scientific findings related to the two disciplinary streams. These also foresee common activities with the objective of offering tools to build a sound scientific, managerial and economic base for the general comprehension of the broader theme of climate change, with the opportunity for in depth studies of specific issues and for experiencing a multidisciplinary approach. The second year is aimed at providing the PhD candidates with an experience of research in a foreign institution, while the third year is mainly devoted to the preparation of the thesis.
