Project Number:


Project Period:

2015 - 2015


This project is to host the 2015 Scientific Steering Committee of the Global Carbon Project in Oslo. The Global Carbon Project was established in 2001 in recognition of the large scientific challenges and critical nature of the carbon cycle for Earth?s sustainability. The scientific goal of the GCP is to develop a complete picture of the global carbon cycle, including both its biophysical and human dimensions together with the interactions and feedbacks between them. The activities of the GCP are coordinated through the Scientific Steering Committee with close collaboration with the Executive Directors. On 22-24 June 2015 CICERO will host the annual GCP meeting. This will bring together the existing SSC in addition to selected experts that will contribute positively to the SSC agenda (about 20 experts in total). This is a great opportunity for CICERO, and Norway more broadly, to show commitment to the ongoing activities under the GCP, Future Earth, and contribute to the high-level carbon cycle science agenda.
