JPI Climate

Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe

Basic Information

Description

Climate change is a complex reality, which affects European society at large. Understanding and responding to climate change requires coordinated and large-scale European efforts, in research, innovation and governance. JPI Climate: - provides the platform where these objectives can be met, aligning national research priorities according to a jointly agreed Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) with the aim of complementing and supporting initiatives at the European level (ERANETs, FP8, Climate KIC, ESFRI Projects). - facilitates the coordination, collaboration and exploitation of synergies while working against fragmentation and duplication of efforts. Coordination of the research base secured through national resources will help underpin European efforts to confront climate change. - aims to respond to the needs of policy and decision makers and the European society at large for knowledge-based information and services to address climate change. The main objective of this programme is to provide integrated climate knowledge and decision support services for societal innovation. - is innovative in its interdisciplinary approach in connecting natural- with socio-economic sciences and it is guided, coordinated and managed through a flexible collaborative governance mechanism.

JPI Climate facilitates the coordination, collaboration and exploitation of synergies while working against fragmentation and duplication of efforts. Coordination of the research base secured through national resources will help underpin European efforts to confront climate change. JPI Climate aims to respond to the needs of policy and decision makers and the European society at large for knowledge-based information and services to address climate change. The main objective of this programme is to provide integrated climate knowledge and decision support services for societal innovation. The JPI Climate is built upon four modules: improving climate projections, climate services, societal transformation, and decision-support tools. It is innovative in its interdisciplinary approach in connecting natural- with socio-economic sciences and it is guided, coordinated and managed through a flexible collaborative governance mechanism.
