CASE PIs and the EPM gathered in Talence (France) on the afternoon of February 6, 2014, immediately after the end of the 2nd Open Conference, for a final managerial and scientific meeting.


Managerial aspects discussed by the EPM and PIs included:

- the working plan for the final and periodic reports due by the end of May 2014.

- the preparation of the financial report (Form C).


CASE ESRs: each partner institutions provided information on the progress of the ESRs’ research projects and expected date of PhD submissions:

- 3 ESRs succesfully defended their PhD on November 2013 (P. Cabedo-Sanz, Univ. Plymouth) and December 2013 (G. Milzer and C. Dylmer, both at Univ. Bordeaux).

- 9 ESRs will submit their PhD before July 2014.

- 1 ESR, presently in maternty leave, will submit her PhD during the first semester of 2015 (I. Pathirana, NGU Trondheim).


A summary of publications and communications in international conferences was provided by the CASE coordinator: a total of ca. 20 publications in international journals and ca. 40 communications to international conferences were published by the CASE consortium.

A special issue of the EGU journal “Climate of the Past” edited by J. Giraudeau, H. Renseen, J. Knies and D.D. Rousseau (, made of 9 original papers, and gathering some of the main results obtained by CASE ESRs and CASE PIs projects, is nearly completed.


This short meeting ended up with an agreement on future post-CASE collaborations. The PIs agreed on meeting at Univ. Plymouth in fall 2014 in order to prepare a bid for an “Horizon 2020” call, probably ITN, on the wide topic of the atmosphere-ocean coupling in the northern North Atlantic and surrounding Seas, from the investigation of marine sediment cores providing extremely high temporal resolution (subdecadal to centennial). Fjord and inner shelf areas are specifically targeted. This future consortium will be extended to new partner institutions.
