PannEx (Pannonian Basin Experiment) is a Regional Hydroclimate Project 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 in the Pannonian Basin, and to discuss the cooperation possibilities for research projects. The workshop is intended to strengthen & organise the work of the PannEx Task Teams and develop a new iteration of the Science and Implementation Plan. The flagship scientific questions and cross cut subjects identified and developed during the last 4 years are formalised in the White Book.


Topics of the 6th workshop follow the structure of the PannEx Task Teams and include:

  • Agroclimatological and Agrobiological Systems;
  • Energy Production;
  • Special Observations and Data Analysis;
  • Ecosystem Services;
  • Urban Climate and Air Quality;
  • Outreach and Education;
  • Micrometeorology and Agronomical Process Modelling;
  • Water Balance at Basin Scale;
  • Modelling from Climate to Flash Floods
