ICOS/DK Kick-off Meeting

The kick-off meeting of ICOS Denmark was held at Monday January 23rd at the Technical University of Denmark with about 40 participants. The meeting gave an overview of ICOS, of ICOS Denmark, and the ICOS Carbon Portal.
The plan for interaction with users were presented and users from the scientific community gave examples of usage of ICOS data in modelling.

Invited s
peakers were ICOS ERIC Director General Werner Kutsch, the Director of the Carbon Portal Alex Vermeulen, and representatives of the modelling community Senior Researcher Camilla Geels and Associate Professor Guy Schurgers.

ICOS Denmark is a consortium of University of Aarhus, University of Copenhagen, Roskilde University and the Technical University of Denmark.

First Nordic Icos Symposium

The Nordic ICOS Symposium is on the Nordic ICOS stations and the use of results from these stations. All researchers working with the Nordic stations and data from them are invited to give presentations (oral or poster).
