The "First CLIM-RUN Workshop on Climate Services"
15-19 October 2012 – ICTP, Trieste, Italy

The workshop was focussed on the development of, and training for, a new research expertise that lie at the interface between climate science and stakeholder application within the Climate Services framework.

The workshop was run in three parts, the first covering fundamental climate and predictability issues and the last covering specific stakeholder oriented application issues. The central section was focused on a variety of 'cross-over' themes essential for the delivery of climate services.
