Welcome to Climate Change, Adaptation, and Coastal Towns and Cities (2021)

Description: Climate Change, Adaptation, and Coastal Towns and Cities is organised by 

The Nordic Node of the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN). 

The course is a multi-/inter-disciplinary 5 ECTS PhD Course on location in Denmark and run as an intensive Urban Design Climate Workshop (see e.g. https://uccrn.ei.columbia.edu/urban-design-climate-workshops). Some lectures will be given online prior the workshop; there may also be an additional few online sessions during the workshop in order to minimise travel-needs (and associated emissions). The course will be repeated every year for three years. 

Expected number of PhD students per edition is 20 to 25. The participating students will be divided into groups of five complementing each other through their specific expertises and research foci, and working on concrete cases together with local stakeholders.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
