Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe

JPI Climate is a collaboration between 14 European countries to coordinate jointly their climate research and fund new transnational research initiatives. JPI Climate connects scientific disciplines, enables cross-border research and increases the science-practice interaction.

JPI Climate contributes to the overall EU objective of developing a European Research Area and is coordinated with the EU Programme Horizon 2020 in support of excellent science, industrial leadership and the European response to one of the great societal challenges of our times, which is climate change.



Pre-announcement Call JPI-Climate & Belmont Forum Climate Services Collaborative Research Action on Climate Predictability and Inter-Regional Linkages This call for proposals aims to contribute to the overall challenge of developing climate services with a focus on inter-regional linkages role in climate variability and predictability. A particular focus of interest is the drivers and mechanisms linking Poles & Monsoons for societal usefulness of climate services. Major impediments indeed still exist to having efficient climate services at regional and local level, because of little or poorly understood climate processes (in part caused by a paucity of observations), inadequate dissemination of scientific knowledge, conflicts between climatic and non-climatic stressors and lack of action by decision makers and the human society at large.

JPI Climate Knowledge Usability WORK-Shop (17 June 2015, Brussels) In this WORK-Shop, European climate researchers and policymakers bring together experiences and lessons learned as well as strategies, tools and practices to bridge the usability gap of climate change research projects. The most appropriate approach will be explored, taking into account the differing context of science-determined, sciencedriven and user informed, or user-driven and science informed processes.

Upcoming Events

21 Apr 2015 JPI Climate Workshop: Improving knowledge for enhanced climate change response and decision-making This upcoming workshop on april 21/22, 2015, Brussels, on 'Improving knowledge for enhanced climate change response and decision-making' will explore the mechanisms of influencing decision making in order to better understand how knowledge needs to be provided and conveyed in order to finally result in relevant action in the face of climate change.
