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.

Mobile and web applications co-developed by Climalert project The Climalert project has been completed with the co-development of two tools: a mobile application that allows end-users to get relevant information on weather events (past, present and future) and on phenological and soil condition for decision making and to implement adaptation measures; and a web application that inform end-users on future scenarios (mid and long term) on potential ecosystems services related to water provision and quality.

ECLISEA (European advances on CLImate Services for Coasts and SEAs): Advancing coastal and marine climate science and associated services ECLISEA project developed new data and evaluation of coastal climate change research in Europe, the study of climate features of sea surface dynamics at a consistent European scale, the research into the complexity and uncertainties of impact models on the coastal region and shelf seas, and the comparison of existing methods, including the development of statistical and dynamical downscaling, which were transferred to several user-friendly prototypes that convey a framework for coastal climate services.

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.
