Brussels, 17 Mar 2003
CarboEurope is a cluster of EU research projects, funded under the Fifth Framework Programme, which aim to assess the European carbon balance of the terrestrial biosphere.
The cluster is organising the CarboEurope conference, in cooperation with the global carbon project, which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 19 to 21 March.
The conference aims to:
- present to a wide scientific audience the results of three years of integrated European research, which pioneered terrestrial carbon research in a number of areas;
- compare and discuss approaches and findings with parallel ongoing regional and international carbon research initiatives;
- enhance the integration of disciplines (biological, physical) and ecosystems (land, ocean) in carbon research.
Specific topics for discussion include the terrestrial continental carbon budget, process understanding, carbon management, and integrating carbon science in Europe and beyond.
