General aims

SINCERE aims to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, building on existing collaborations, such as the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors.

Two Flagship Actions, focused on the design of research and innovation collaborations in Africa and Latin America, aim to expand and deepen knowledge to support the uptake of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, climate services and resilience to disasters linked to climate change.

Expanding JPI Climate to include member countries in Eastern Europe is a particular goal.


CMCC Role

CMCC is Leader of the WP 2 “WIDEN – Widening the platform” whose objectives are:

1) to consolidate and extend the JPI Climate partnership, by extending and strengthening the partnerships, among others by converting associated countries into full members, and

2) to stimulate an ideal place for dialogs, consultations and cooperation aimed at boosting investments and partnership for climate research and innovation, by engaging the financing sector organisations and the research funding communities in order to identify the right partners for the Flagship Actions.

CMCC will also contribute to WP 3 “IMPLEMENT – Increasing the International Implementation and Impact” and WP 4 “ACT – Flagship Actions for International Research Collaboration” and WP 5 “Communicate – Increasing the societal impact through communication”.


Expected results

SINCERE will make JPI Climate an attractive partner for global cooperation in climate change research and innovation, thanks to close partnership with other JPIs, European Commission and European initiatives, as well as cooperation with the Global Framework for Climate Services, the Future Earth platform on global sustainability and the Belmont Forum.

SINCERE will strengthen the role of JPI Climate in providing underpinning knowledge and evidence for supporting the implementation of related EU policies and for fostering the EU’s common position in the global climate-related negotiations under UNFCCC. In addition, SINCERE will support the implementation of the SDGs, in particular SDG 13 ‘Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts’, as well as the implementation of the COP21 Paris Agreement.


Activity

SINCERE aims to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), building on existing collaborations, such as with other JPIs, the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors.

Expanding JPI Climate to include member countries in Eastern Europe is a particular goal. Two Flagship Actions, focused on the design of research and innovation collaborations in Africa and Latin America, aim to expand and deepen knowledge to support the uptake of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, climate services and resilience to disasters linked to climate change. Targeted activities supported by an innovative outreach programme will enhance the international impact of JPI Climate research and innovation activities supporting both global science programmes and policy processes.
