JPI Climate launches call to enhance user satisfaction with Climate Services
On 1 March 2016, the Joint Programming Initiative "Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe" launched the "ERA4CS" Call with the objective of enhancing user adoption of, and satisfaction with, Climate Services (incl. adaptation services). Improving the quality of Climate Services is also within the scope of this call. At the same time ERA4CS aims to improve the scientific expertise on Climate Change risks and adaptation options, and to connect that knowledge with decision-making, e.g. by developing and assessing climate adaptation strategies and pathways at different scales (regions, cities, catchments, vulnerable sectors, etc.).
The present joint call will be financed by ERA4CS partners from 18 countries, contributing either by cash funding or by in-kind resources, plus co-funding from the European Commission. A total budget of about € 72 million has been provisionally allocated to this call to support 3 years of research projects.
