2019 Polar CORDEX Meeting

The 2019 Polar CORDEX meeting will be held from Monday, October 7, 2019, at 11 am to Wednesday, October 9, 2019, at 2 pm, at the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Please register for the 2019 Polar CORDEX meeting by September 30, 2019, here: https://forms.gle/j6kumRMtC2kjCY4S6

To be considered for travel support, please register by August 1st, 2019.

Ruth Mottram will host the event.

Travel Information:

The meeting will be hosted at DMI, on the outskirts of Copenhagen but easily accessible by bus or s-train to neighbouring  Ryparken station. Or do as the Copenhageners do and borrow a bicycle! Travel around the city by public transport is easy to organize using the website and app Rejseplanen.dk .

Copenhagen is served by a major airport with fast metro and rail connection to the city centre and also has rail links to Germany and Sweden. To accommodate those trying to reduce their travel CO2 footprint, the meeting will start late on Monday and finish early on Wednesday to enable those on the sleeper train to Hamburg to make their connections.

There are a very full range of hotels, BnBs and hostels in Copenhagen but rates can be quite high, it is worth booking well in advance! Many of our visitors use the centrally located  cabinn hotels.

Further information on visiting the city can be found via VisitCopenhagen.
