For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU. Trondheim has now become the EU capital of carbon management research, and we have no qualms about emitting just a few grammes of sparkling CO2 in celebration. Starting in June 2017, more than 50 laboratories in five European countries will be coordinated from Trondheim.
As a part of my doctoral degree I will learn more about what happens 90 kilometers over our heads. What happens up there today will influence the weather and climate here at Earth in the weeks to come.
