As a central part of its educational and research mission, SCRiM hosts an annual summer school to foster opportunities for collaboration and to provide a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.
A key focus of the workshop is developing a common vocabulary to help foster enhanced cross-disciplinary communication, enabling the possibility for future research and decision support collaborations. Participants will also gain hands-on experience with key methods and tools including robust decisionmaking, use of simple models, and analysis of relevant datasets.
This program is targeted at postdocs, advanced graduate students, and early-career professionals in the decisionmaking and policy communities who are working on issues related to climate risk.
In most cases, lodging, meals, registration, and travel costs can be fully covered for participants (see further details at the bottom of this page). International applicants are encouraged.
The 7th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management was held July 29 - August 2 at Penn State and was co-supported by the NOAA Mid-Atlantic RISA (MARISA).

Additional details on cost support for Summer School participants: Federal, state, and local government employees are strongly encouraged to apply. However, in most cases, NSF rules prohibit us from covering the travel, lodging, and meal costs for U.S. Federal employees. In certain circumstances, conflict-of-interest concerns may also limit our ability to cover these costs for employees of other government entities. Please contact Katerina Kostadinova (email@example.com) with any questions regarding this.
