WP 4: Graduate School
A Nordic graduate school in cryosphere science and Earth systems modelling will be established through joint courses, summer schools, workshops and cross border integration of PhD projects and PostDoc activities. The SVALI Graduate School is a core platform for aligning qualified personnel to work on specific projects linked to the key research themes.
WP 5: Earth system modelling
The horizontal activity for advanced Earth system modelling (AESM) will coordinate model development and ensure effective use of AESM input and output within all themes of the project. The AESM as an integrating theme will coordinate access to data and model components, identify areas where common efforts are useful, and organize such work through workshops and data sharing facilities.
WP 6: Outreach and dissemination
The output of SVALI will be of interest to a number of different audiences including the scientific community, policy and decision makers, the educational system and children, and the general public. The outreach activities will be based on a variety of different means including a NCoE leaflet
, website, educational material and activities, scientific assessments, summaries for policy and decision makers, press releases and exhibitions.
