ERA-NET Cofund for Climate Services


The ERA-NET Consortium “European Research Area for Climate Services”, so-called ERA4CS, has been designed to boost the development of efficient Climate Services in Europe, by supporting research for developing better tools, methods and standards on how to produce, transfer, communicate and use reliable climate information to cope with current and future climate variability.

What are  Climate Services?

We consider Climate Services as the user-driven development, translation and transfer of climate knowledge to researchers and decision¬makers in policy and business. This includes knowledge for understanding the climate, climate change and its impacts, as well as guidance in the use of climate knowledge.

A short guide of ERA4CS projects The 2016 joint call on “Researching and Advancing Climate Services Development” has been funded by ERA4CS partners contributing either by cash funding or by in-kind resources plus co-funding on both topics from the European Union. This call resulted in the selection of 26 projects that will be active from the autumn 2017 to the spring 2021. The present document is intended to provide an overview of the objectives, pilot users, main deliverables and input data of the 26 projects supported by ERA4CS. A summary of achievements of the 26 projects will be published in 2021, as part of the final report of ERA4CS.

Report on mapping of ERA4CS member states’ national activities for climate services The aim of the report is to extend the mapping of climate services in all participating countries by collecting and labeling the various projects, programmes and agendas developed within each RFO and each RPO of the ERA4CS consortium to support identifying current strength and weaknesses of the European CS landscape and increase visibility of providers and their portfolios for both users and providers.

ERA4CS Additional Activities: Mapping of European and International Activities The process for this report was to first find relevant documents that describe strategies and plans of climate service actions from the ERA4CS partner network. In the next steps these documents or web resources were analysed for references to climate services or JPI Climate and how the initiative is being resourced. The editors finally drafted short summaries of this analysis into the texts of this report.
