A special thanks goes out to the PROFOUND Steering Group, the local organiser […]
Some key facts: STSMs are exchange visits between researchers from COST countries, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country or a partner country. Duration: 5 – 90 days (up to 180 days for Early Stage Researchers) Max. 2.500€ in total (up to 3.500€ for Early Stage Researchers) This call is […]
A Training School in the frame of COST Action FP 1304 PROFOUND has been held in Zvolen (middle Slovakia) from 05.09.-07.09-2016. The training school offered a comprehensive overview of forest models for forest management, model categories, measuring data and parameters for the models and technologies in forest modelling. The Trainees were introduced to different model […]
The WG2 TG7 (COFOLAMO=Comparison of forest landscape models) workshop in Davos from 06-08/06/2016 was very intense, productive and enthusiastic and because of that a lot of fun. Many thanks to the participants, for their input to the science but also to the Cooking for Landscape Modellers. We discussed and improved the simulation protocol. We set […]
PROFOUND co-organised the ISIMIP cross-sectoral workshop at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts Research on 22-24 June, 2016. We had a productive and enjoyable (albeit hot!) three days to discuss how global vegetation models can contribute to the scientific basis for the IPCC Special Report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial […]
