The Social and Economic Research and Applications group of the Polar Prediction Project (PPP-SERA) would like to cordially invite you to a Special Services Projects workshop, titled: “Co-production in the European Arctic weather, water, ice and climate services”. During this online workshop we would like to  reach out to projects in Europe that focus on the development of weather, water, ice and climate (WWIC) information services for communities and economic sectors in the European Arctic region, based on a strong stakeholder engagement component. This online workshop will take place on Monday the 25th of January 2021 (13:00-17:00 CET).

At this workshop we plan to bring together researchers and representatives who have been or are currently involved in relevant European projects aimed at co-producing weather, water, ice and climate (WWIC) information services for communities and economic sectors in the European Arctic. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the state of the art of co-production approaches in European Arctic research, to understand and map different approaches taken across a range of European projects, and to discuss challenges and draw lessons for the future.

At the workshop we will give the floor to a range of experts. The following speakers have confirmed their participation at the workshop:

  • Dr. Kirstin Werner (ICO-Alfred Wegener Insititute): The Polar Prediction Project
  • Dr. Annette Scheepstra (EU-PolarNet-University of Groningen): The relevance of co-production in European Polar Research
  • Dr. Marta Bruno Soares (University of Leeds): Lessons for Co-producing for Climate Services
  • Dr. Berill Blair (Wageningen University & Research): Experiences from the SALIENSEAS project
  • Dr. Marta Terrado (Barcelona Supercomputing Centre): Experiences from the APPLICATE project

Next to these presenters we will engage in several online breakout discussions to capture and discuss the experiences, challenges and lessons of all the participants in detail.

If you would like to attend this workshop, please fill in the registration form. Next to your registration information, this form includes a brief survey on your experience and perspective regarding co-production processes. After registration and acceptance you will receive the Zoom link to the meeting and additional information.
