Climate - Climate Variability, Predictability and Climate Risks
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), Climate - Climate Variability, Predictability and Climate Risks, investigates processes in the climate system, its variability and predictability, as well as the complex relationships between climate, economy and social factors. Scientists from a wide range of disciplines work together towards this end. The main general focuses of the projects are the impact of climate change on the water cycle, climate change and extreme events, and the assessment of climate risks. Risk considerations focus on sectors of industry which are particularly affected: from agriculture to the insurance and financial sectors. The NCCR Climate has generated two permanent research centres: the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Bern and the Centre for Climate Systems Modeling at the ETH Zurich.
