A workshop of the Siberian-French Center for Education and Research
2-4 Dec 2013 Toulouse (France)


Founded in 2013, the Siberian-French Center for Research and Training is a Network of French and Russian National institutions that brings together scientists working in natural, social and human sciences in Siberia. Bridging 38 institutions in the two countries, its objectives are to facilitate and encourage its participants to develop joint research and trainings, via national, European and international funding calls. The Siberian-French Center (SFC) is currently based on five topics, one of these is « Environment, Biosphere, Climatic Change ». As high latitudes of the northern hemisphere are particularly sensitive to global change, we expect drastic changes in ecosystem dynamics, biogeochemical cycles, and atmospheric conditions. Siberia, as the main terrestrial part of the arctic region, plays a key role in these changes. To allow the French-Russian scientific community involved in the « Environment, Biosphere, Climatic Change » topic to get together, a first workshop on “Siberia's role in current global change” is organized. This participative workshop intends to pave the way for sustainable cooperation on research, observations and training between France and Russia.
