Identifying value-judgement in climate impact science

Dear colleagues,

We are inviting you to register to our workshop on 'Identifying value-judgement in climate impact science' that aims to explore the presence and impact of value-laden assumptions and methodology choices within scientific research in climate and climate impact science and climate economics. Bringing together external philosophers of science with researchers from PIK, MCC, and other Geo.X institutions we invite you to explore how values within the scientific process can be identified and managed and do so for case studies from your respective disciplines. One reason for pursuing such integration of philosophical work into scientific practice is its contribution to help policy relevant science to fulfill its role effectively and allow philosophy to improve the theories and practical recommendations to that effect (for further motivation and background on the topic, see
