Copernicus Face 2 Face

Copernicus Climate Data Store Face-to-Face Training Event

Wednesday, November 13th, 2019.
from 09:00 to 18:00
Sala Tau, Cosmocaixa. Barcelona.


The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) User Learning Services (ULS) provide learning resources and events to support those who need to use climate data to assess climate change impacts.  Past, current and future climate data are accessed via the Copernicus Climate Data Store (CDS). The Copernicus Climate Change Service is implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of the European Commission.

In the CDS you can find quality assured, free of charge climate information. The CDS provides an extensive collection of climate datasets, easily searchable through a catalogue. In addition, an online toolbox allows users to build workflows and applications suited to their needs.

The C3S ULS uses a blended training approach. Once the individual self-paced learning is completed, using online resources available on the ULS Learning Experience Platform, participants will attend a full day face-to-face training event with expert trainers to discuss complex concepts encountered during the self-paced study. With the experts’s guidance, participants will apply their acquired knowledge to practical case studies.

All the lectures will be given by Tecnalia trainers with the exception of “CDS User Experience and Engagement” which will be delivered by a Barcelona Supercomputing Center expert.
