A side event organized by JPI Climate and CMCC Foundation Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) in collaboration with ERA4CS and SINCERE. The event offers an opportunity for open dialogue with our European and international partners on the value of European climate research. Reliable data, scientifically valid scenarios, climate services that take into account the most advanced scientific knowledge are essential for the adoption of effective policies and that allow to adequately respond to international commitments such as the Paris Agreement on Climate. JPI Climate is a joint programming initiative to which 18 European countries adhere. Platform for the exchange and cooperation of scientific knowledge on Climate, JPI Climate operates in close relationship with the European Commission and is directly involved in various international cooperation projects.
