About the Centre
The main goal of the Centre for Climate Change Research (CCCR) is to research climate changes over the last millennium in Poland, Central Europe and polar areas (mainly the Arctic). Nicolaus Copernicus University staff have been working together on this subject since 1999 in less formalised arrangements as part of numerous research projects, as documented by many publications in high-impact journals. The other goals of the CCCR are:
- To hold scientific conferences and general university lectures, inviting the world’s most prominent experts in climate change, the environment, and related fields;
- To popularise knowledge about climate change and the environment;
- To participate in expert teams, writing expert opinions on climate change and its environmental and societal consequences.
The CCCR currently consists of fifteen researchers from four NCU faculties representing five separate scientific disciplines (Mathematics and Computer Science; Biological and Veterinary Sciences; Historical Sciences; and Earth Sciences and Spatial Management). In the future, researchers from Poland and abroad will be invited to work at or with the CCCR.
