On the 10th July, 2017 at the First Institute of Oceanography (FIO), State Oceanic Administration of China, a meeting between representatives of the UNESCO/IOC Regional Training and Research Center on Ocean Dynamics and Climate (ODC), and the International CLIVAR Project Office (ICPO) took place.

The object of the meeting was to discuss the possibility of stablishing a biannual CLIVAR-IOC/ODC Joint Summer School, beginning in the summer of 2018. The Summer School would create an excellent opportunity for Early career Scientists from around the world to have a first-hand experience on current topics of relevance in Oceanography and Atmospheric Sciences.

A road map is being developed that will allow this training opportunity to become a reality. Please stay tuned to follow the developments of this new and exciting event.
