The use of climate services can play a crucial role for the transition to a low carbon economy and to a more informed, resilient society, becoming a key enabler for the implementation of the European Green Deal. This makes user-driven climate services and the emergence of a related market a key research and innovation priority identified by the EU and supported through a number of funding programmes and initiatives.
This vision, which has been pinpointed in the European research and innovation roadmap for climate services, is being turned into action through a number of projects. Projects, most of which started in 2017-18, have now produced significant results. A number of (pre)operational services have been developed with end users, which hold potential for scaling-up and replication to additional users or use sectors. At the same time, new awareness has been built on constraints hampering the full deployment of services and possible ways to overcome them.
Within the European Research Area (ERA), the ERA4CS Consortium aimed to boost research for Climate Services (CS), including climate adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk management, allowing regions, cities and key economic sectors to develop opportunities and strengthen Europe’s leadership.
On-line presentation of the results of ERA4CS projects will be organised on 23 of September, 2021 from 10:00 – 16:00.
This virtual conference aims to present the results of ERA4CS projects, to showcase the main accomplishments of the projects and their future plans to valorise and operationalise the results.
