research*eu RESULTS PACK – A European market for climate services through innovative EU research

The latest research*eu RESULTS PACK– a collection of articles on EU-funded projects dedicated to a specific field of scientific research – is now available in free, accessible PDF. This brochure casts a light on four innovative and ground-breaking projects funded through the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) that are making big and exciting advances in developing Europe’s climate services market.

Climate change remains one of the world’s most pressing challenges and the European Commission is committed to a ‘forward-looking climate policy’ that will see a reduction of fossil fuel emissions by 80 to 95 % by 2050 – and their complete phase-out by 2100 – and significant adaptation efforts to society and the economy to make this happen. Climate services will be a significant component in the creation of effective adaptation strategies solutions. Whilst a relatively new and specialised sector, the European Commission, as recognised through its 2015 European Research and Innovation Roadmap for Climate Services, believes that it has the potential to become, in essence, a key resource and intelligence behind the transition to a climate-resilient and low-carbon society. The four projects featured within this brochure have helped to plug some of the many gaps in our collective understanding and have laid the groundwork for a thriving sector that will continue to be supported by the EU over the coming years through ongoing and future research support through the Horizon 2020 programme and other relevant funding mechanisms. Each of the four projects is contributing to the advancing of our scientific understanding on climate change and the role that we humans are playing in this process.
