WCRP Open Science Conference 2023
From Monday 23 October 2023
To Friday 27 October 2023
Location Kigali, Rwanda

The next WCRP Open Science Conference (OSC) will take place in 2023, with the major goal of bridging science and society by “advancing climate science for a sustainable future.” Climate risk, early warning, attribution, uncertainty, tipping points, irreversibility, and abrupt climate change are just some of the topics that will be discussed, both on a global and regional scale, as well as the fundamental science that is critical to advancing these important topics. 

Science leaders, politicians, policy makers, intergovernmental agencies and NGOs will share ideas on how climate research leads to a sustainable future. Natural and social scientists, humanities scholars, and practitioners from around the world will showcase their work, learn from each other, and explore new ways to work together to build the future we want. The OSC will feature the latest research from across the WCRP community (Core ProjectsLighthouse ActivitiesGrand Challenges) and from all of our key partners.
