HIGHLANDER – High performance computing to support smart land services

Through the use of High Performance Computing, HIGHLANDER will make it possible to process data and generating climate forecasts and projections to reduce the risks associated with climate change, for a more intelligent and sustainable management of natural resources and the territory.


SAFERPLACES – Improved assessment of pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazards and risks in European cities as a mean to build safer and resilient communities

SAFERPLACES employs innovative climate, hydrological and hydraulic, topographic and economic modelling techniques to assess pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazard and risk in urban environments under current and future climates. The service is designed to support the identification and assessment of flood risk mitigation measures and plans, inform climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies, and help to foster multi-stakeholder agreements and partnership for resilience building. SAFERPLACES builds upon the successfully completed 2017 Climate KIC Pathfinder project ‘PLACES – Pluvial flood hazard and risk assessment and mitigation in European cities’.

SAM-PS – Study on Adaptation Modelling

DG Climate Action awarded this tender to a group pf 4 partners lead by CMCC. SAM-PS project focuses in a broad and comprehensive manner on adaptation modelling. Its overall objective is to support better-informed decision-making on adaptation, which is among the priority areas of the EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change.


TEACHER-CE – Title CE joinT Efforts to increase water management Adaptation to climate CHanges in central EuRope

TEACHER-CE intends to integrate and harmonize results of previously or ongoing projects funded within INTERREG CE Program and/or other European initiatives. The main territorial challenge to be addressed concerns the development of effective adaptation processes and prevention of weather-induced risks for water management in Central Europe, where the effects of climate changes can be already clearly observed and, in future years, could have strong impact at territorial level
