An intense and successful second I-CISK project General Assembly in Madrid

The European project “Innovating Climate Services through Integrating Scientific and Local Knowledge” (I-CISK) held its general assembly on October 5-6 in Madrid, Spain. UNIVERSIDAD COMPLUTENSE DE MADRID (UCM), representatives invited project partners to present their progress and to discuss open questions regarding the project’s implementation and ongoing activities and plan future steps. Approximately 30 consortium members met at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) in Madrid for two days of intensive discussions surrounding the I-CISK project. During a morning of updates from the different work packages and the 7 Living Labs (LLs), members also reflected on the main research and innovation directions.

This was the second general assembly meeting of the I-CISK project following the first general assembly meeting in Munster, Germany in 2022.

The objective of the general assembly was to come together as a consortium to discuss project progress and explore how to take the project forward to meet the objectives it has set. A particular aspect of this meeting was to interact with each project partner and living labs, exchange ideas, roadmaps, possible collaborations and how to work together going forward.

The general assembly was structured around a detailed agenda. It included sessions with short updates from each work package that constitute the project, interactive sessions on the co‐creation process and climate services as well as early career researchers presentations. Additionally, group work sessions on possible collaborations and the development of scientific publications were held. All partners contributed actively to the meeting with several representatives from each attending either in‐person (the majority) or online.
