AXA Science Talk on Extreme Weather
A new AXA Science Talk series organized by AXA Germany with the AXA Research Fund kicks off with a webinar on extreme weather and climate change.
Weather extremes have become more and more frequent in recent years. What findings do research and science offer on this development? What causes cumulative extreme weather events? How is nature affected by climate change – and how can it help us adapt? What is the interaction between our food system and climate change?
These topics were discussed during the webinar held by AXA Germany on March 11, 2021, which gathered Dagmar Haase, Professor of Landscape Ecology at the Humboldt University in Berlin, Joaquim Pinto, Professor of Meteorology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Marco Springmann, Senior Researcher in the Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford.
These three scientists supported by the AXA Research Fund presented their research during the online live event moderated by Alina Schadwinkel, senior editor at Spektrum der Wissenschaft, and answered questions from the audience.
