Évora, PortugalEUCOP 4, is going to be held in Évora, Portugal 18-21 June, 2014. The PAGE21 project partners are actively participating in the conference chairing various sessions and presenting the latest research. Full list of accepted abstracts can be found here.

A Young Researchers workshop will be organized in a joint effort of PYRN (Permafrost Young Researchers Network), APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists ) and the young researcher representatives of the two projects PAGE21 (Changing Permafrost in the Arctic and its Global Effects in the 21st Century) and ADAPT (Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition).

The workshop aims at building interdisciplinary knowledge on how the Arctic and Antarctic permafrost regions play a key role in the Earth System and to give each participant a more overarching view on the regions beyond disciplinary research questions.

To achieve this, the participants will share knowledge with each other in thematic break-out sessions and elaborate the future avenues of permafrost research together, with mentors playing a key role in permafrost research either in large-scale international projects or science policy.

What is more, the workshop participants engaged with PAGE21 project will share their experience through casual blogs from the Conference and the Workshop.

We encourage other participants to share their experience via the comments system that will be available together with the blogs.
