The study was supported with an Inclusiveness Target Country Conference Grant. The congress hosted participants from 44 countries over 522 papers contributed by over 1300 authors. He expresses his thoughts about the participation as folllows:

"It was a great chance to listen invaluable presentations, which may make considerable contributions to my prospective studies. This participation was also a great chance to promote the goals of the PROCLIAS project. As the Action gives importance to key interactions of climate impacts across sectors and new dissemination channels, the conference was a great opportunity to get to know new approaches and expand my network."
