Knowledge sharing amongst researchers
Example FACCE MACSUR Knowledge Hub
The Knowledge Hub for Modelling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security (MACSUR) was launched by the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI). It is a network of 300 European researchers from 18 European countries who aim to advance the science of modelling and assessment of the impacts of climate variability and change on regional farming systems and food production in Europe. Besides networking amongst researchers, the MACSUR Knowledge Hub also allows for capacity building and the conduct of new research coordinated at trans-national level.
The ERA-LEARN case study on MACSUR is available here.
A knowledge sharing workshop will be arranged during the GHGT-13 conference in Lausanne, Switzerland, 14th November 2016
Example Smart Grids + expera
Expera is the platform of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus Knowledge Community. This platform allow to share knowledge with members of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus Community. The Community includes representatives of industry, policy, research and other institutions as well as diverse smart grids initiatives, thereby installing a direct link between RDD initiatives, smart grids experts and decision-makers.
The Knowledge Network on Sustainable Intensification is a new instrument being developed by FACCE-JPI, envisioned as a broad expert community connected by a Committee of National Science Leads and Funder Representatives and an informal web of nodes and interactions. The network will be formed by ongoing projects, programmes and various national and international science-policy-practice interactions.
