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.

Webinar training session on Ecological Niche Modelling On November 8th, CoCliME project participants gathered online for an internal webinar training session on Ecological Niche Modelling (a.k.a. habitat suitability modelling). A goal of CoCliME is to produce climate services related to harmful algal blooms by using existing data and knowledge about the blooms to predict their occurrences and bloom intensity in a changing climate.

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.
