6th PannEx meeting

Regional environmental challenges in the Pannonian basin

Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 20-22 June 2022





WS Flyer     Programme

The workshop was organized under the framework of the research project Redefining agro-climatic suitability zones for maize and winter wheat crops towards a smart climate change-oriented agriculture in Romania (AGROCLIMRO) financed by the Executive Unit for the Financing of Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation (UEFISCDI) in Romania.

It was organized by the Babes-Bolyai University, Faculty of Geography, Research Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with the University of Agriculture Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Cluj-Napoca, INDECO Soft and the PannEx consortium network.



PannEx (Pannonian Basin Experiment) is a Regional Hydroclimate Network of the Global Energy and Water Exchanges project (GEWEX) which aims to achieve a better understanding of the Earth system components and their interactions in the Pannonian Basin. The international efforts involve the international research community in an integrated approach towards identifying and increasing adaptation capacity in the face of climate change in the Pannonian Basin.


The 6th workshop is dedicated to introduce the ongoing and planned research on climate change in extreme weather events and adaptation, and to discuss the cooperation possibilities for research projects. The workshop is intended to strengthen & organize the work of the PannEx Task Teams and develop a new iteration of the Science and Implementation Plan.  More details are available in the White Book at: https://www.wcrp-climate.org/WCRP-publications/2019/WCRP-Report-No3-2019-PannEx-WB.pdf

The workshop is organized as a side meeting of the workshop Climate Service for a Sustainable Agriculture organized within the framework of the research project AGROCLIMRO (www.agroclim.ro).
