August 04, 2013 to August 09, 2013
Wilco Hazeleger leads the Global Climate Division of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and he has a chair in Climate Dynamics at Wageningen University. He studied meteorology at Wageningen University (NL) and Reading University (UK). He received his PhD in 1999 in physical oceanography from Utrecht University, after which he went to Columbia University in New York (USA) to conduct research on decadal climate variability. Since 2002 he works at KNMI on climate dynamics, development of climate and sea level scenario\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s and development of global earth system models. His climate and sea level scenario work is directed toward climate adaptation issues. He initiated and leads the EC-Earth project, a European consortium of around 20 research institutes, high-end computing centres and universities that develops a state-of-the-art earth system model based on numerical weather prediction model of ECMWF. He serves on a number of international and national science committees. He is involved in a large number of national and European climate science projects.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
