Latest Events and Conferences

The Tyndall Centre holds and contributes to regular events and presentations on climate change issues throughout the country. Through these events we seek to engage with other researchers, key stakeholders such as business leaders, policy advisors, NGOs, agencies and the media as well as the public in general. We also use the events as opportunities to share our research results, promote discussion and raise awareness of climate change issues and potential solutions.

Research updates: the first year of MATISSE and the launch of the ADAM project

MATISSE aims to achieve a step-wise advance in the science and application of Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA) of EU policies. In order to reach this objective the core activity of the MATISSE project is to improve the tools available for conducting Integrated Sustainability Assessments. ADAM (Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies: supporting European climate policy) is an integrated research project running from 2006 to 2009 that will lead to a better understanding of the trade-offs and conflicts that exist between adaptation and mitigation policies.

Climate change information in search of decision-makers: Why do managers (not) consider climate change in their long-term planning projects?

Over the last years the scientific community published a lot of information about climate change, in order to help organizations to adapt to climate change. There is however, little research on the effective practices of managers with respect to climate change information, and little evidence that managers consider climate change information in their long-term projects when those projects are sensitive to future changes in climate.
