Complutense University obtains nearly 2 million in European funding to study climate change
On 17 March, the FORCLIMA project at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) has just received €1,976,300 in funding from the ERC consolidator of the European Horizon Programme. This is one of the most competitive EU grants for climate research.
The aim of the five-year project is to study the effects of climate change on the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and Atlantic Ocean currents in order to develop models capable of predicting climate surprises – low-probability, high-impact events.
The project will fill a gap in our knowledge of the long-term future consequences of climate change.
