Ongoing projects

  • AGRO ADAPT offers a service able to anticipate, design and prepare the ground for autonomous or policy induced climate adaptation in agriculture. The service relies on original, innovative and timely research produced by members of the Consortium to assess the economic repercussions of adaptation actions to the changing frequency and intensity of droughts and floods in Europe –at a local, regional and supra-regional level. End users targeted by the service include public agents, notably regional administrations, environmental agencies and river basin authorities; and business operators, notably insurance companies.

  • To improve and innovate Atlantic Ocean  observing, via a more systematic, cost effective and user-driven international integrated observing system.

  • The EMODNET Black Sea checkpoint is a wide monitoring system assessment activity aiming to support the sustainable Blue Growth at the scale of the European Black Sea Basin by clarifying the observation landscape, evaluating the fitness for use of current observations and data assembly programs towards targeted applications (challenges) and prioritizing the needs to optimize monitoring systems in terms of availability, operational reliability, efficiency, time consistency, space consistency, etc. and observational priorities required in the future to meet the challenges.

  • The project is dedicated to the Arctic and the Northern Hemisphere to describe, model and predict the weather and climate of the regions and their teleconnections on seasonal to decadal time scales. This information will allow communities and businesses in Eurasia and North America to develop and plan their activities better.

  • BOOSTER BLUE aims at advancing in the design and development of water markets and drought insurance systems that contribute to the implementation of an effective and efficient water policy mix in Mediterranean climate zones in the EU.

  • CD-LINKS project aims at exploring the complex interplay between climate action and development while simultaneously taking both global and national perspectives. It will fill this critical knowledge gap and provide much-needed information for designing complementary climate-development policies.

  • A project aiming at coordinating and supporting Europe’s knowledge base to enable better management of climate-related risks and opportunities, thereby creating greater social and economic value.

  • COBHAM’s objective is to quantify the role of consumers’ behaviour on the design and assessment of policies aimed at enhancing energy efficiency and conservation and at promoting climate change mitigation.

  • The COP21 outcome represents an important new strategic context for EU climate policy, both at the international and at the EU level. The project COP21-RIPPLES aims at providing an analysis of the implications of this new context through an interdisciplinary approach. Such analysis requires a capacity to combine analysis of the adequacy of the outcome of COP21 and the evolution of the international climate regime complex; to analyse NDCs and deeper mitigation pathways; and to assess their socio-economic implications at multiple levels: Member State, EU, and globally.

  • This contract is issued within the EU Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service implemented operationally by Mercator Océan to provide regular information about the physical state of the ocean and marine ecosystems for the Black Sea.

  • This contract is issued within the EU Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service to provide regular information about the physical state of the ocean and marine ecosystems for the Mediterranean Sea.

  • CRESCENDO will improve the science based foundation of European Earth System Models (ESM) to produce robust, credible and trustworthy climate projections for the coming century within the framework of the World Climate Research Program’s (WCRP) 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6). The use knowledge and data produced by an ensemble of ESMs will support the development of effective climate change policies and will contribute to the resilience and competitiveness of European Countries.

  • ESiWACE will substantially improve efficiency and productivity of numerical weather and climate simulation on high-performance computing platforms.

  • The European Topic Centre on Inland, Coastal and Marine waters (ETC/ICM) is an international consortium brought together to support the European Environment Agency (EEA) in its mission to deliver timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public for the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the European Union and other EEA member countries.

  • The ETC/CCA is a Consortium of European Organizations contracted by the European Environment Agency (EEA) to carry out specific tasks consistently with the EEA 2014-2018 five-year strategy and Multiannual Work Programme and the specific EEA Annual Work Programmes in the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation (CCIVA) across Europe.
