The National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR), based in Bern, Switzerland, studies climate change and its impacts on society through "reconstruction of past climate; study of key physical, chemical and ecological processes; and a concerted effort to develop procedures for seasonal forecasting as well as the forecasting of extreme weather events." This extensive website offers summaries of the goals, methods, status, and results for the NCCR's fourteen main projects. While some of the publications and press releases are not available in English, the website offers a link to the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology where researchers can find many research articles. Researchers and students can find out about many upcoming events and funding opportunities as well.
