24 June 2022: TPChange Campaign Meeting
In late summer 2023, the TPChange Campaign will take place in Northern Germany.
On 24 June 2022, scientific tasks rather than technical aspects will be the main purpose to meet. We plan for short talks by the individual groups focusing on the individual scientific goals. This will also include the forecasting groups or modelling activities to best combine the different approaches. The meeting will take place in Mainz.

3 May 2022: iRODS Workshop for Early Career Researchers
The topic of this workshop was archiving data, in particular using iRODS. iRODS stands for „Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System“ and is the data archive at JGU which is used in TPChange. The workshop was held by Jörg Steinkamp from the data center at JGU.

3 May 2022: Git Course for Early Career Researchers
Within TPChange we offer the possibility to use a source code management with the open source version control system Git (https://git-scm.com/) and the software package Gitlab which comes as a web application (gitlab.rlp.net).

An introduction course to Git was given online by Dr. Jörg Steinkamp from the JGU Data Center.

27 September 2021: Kick-Off Meeting
(Meeting material)
On 27 September 2021 we met for our official Kick-Off meeting. Not in person, unfortunately, but with subgroup discussions and an interactive poster session we were still able to get in contact with each other.
After a short introduction and the approval of formals, we talked about a common data management ground. Each project presented a poster in the following session and in the late afternoon the three Research Areas A/B/C met in order to plan collaborations  within the first year. After that we talked about how the individual projects come together in the central activities: synthesis of observational data and synthesis of modelling.
A total of about sixty people joined the meeting, among them about twenty new PhD students and Postdocs.
