Our leading project, LOCOMOTION, is having a summer school organized in Dubrovnik, Croatia this September. The summer school will give initial training to pre-doctoral students (last year master students with the potential of starting a PhD) and PhD students, so that they can develop their doctoral thesis in the field of Integrated assessment models (IAMs), with Horizon 2020 project WILIAM as a possible tool. Focus will be on possible improvements and the exploitation of its results for different cases of policies and scenarios. At the end of the course, students should be able to work with the WILIAM model to obtain results and simulate policies and scenarios. Those researchers who know other IAMs will be able to know the different characteristics of WILIAM and take advantage of its potentialities.
