Concept for ICOS involvement in carbon and GHG flagship inside GEO and IG3IS program by WMO.

ICOS ERIC will steer the cooperation process and develop official relationships with partner institutions. An international cooperation of regional Networks is envisaged and should be based on official cooperation documents (e.g. Memorandums of Understanding). The report will described the achievements of ICOS ERIC in managing the further development of this cooperation and integration of ICOS into the framework of GEO and IG3IS.

Strategy document on increasing impact of ICOS including a recommendation to ESFRI for comprehensive impact analyses for environmental RIs.

Describing the impact of an ENV RI needs a thoroughly developed set of indicators. Currently, it lacks well-established models (ESFRI Roadmap 2016). The primary impact of RIs in general is in the field of human resources, science and technology. For ICOS this is the science of the global carbon cycle and greenhouse gas exchange between land, oceans and atmosphere and the most important impact is the scientific use of ICOS data. Since our science field is highly interdisciplinary and sensor technologies develop extremely quickly, very flexible and highly educated scientific and technical staff and high managerial skills in the coordination are required. Therefore, RIs have a deep impact on the professional and career development of their personnel via access and training also to a wider scientific community. While the direct economic impact of ICOS via industry cooperation can be easilydescribed, the indirect impact will need further conceptual development. Given the COP21 Paris Agreement the global economy will have to go through the process of decarbonisation in the upcoming decades. The highly skilled personnel in ICOS will provide technical and scientific knowledge that is required to support this process. Observational experiences and technologies further developed between ICOS and its suppliers can foster this development. The societal impact of ICOS can be clearly related to the Grand Challenge of Climate Change mitigation and adaptation: ICOS provides the basic knowledge on greenhouse gases and with this proposal it will increase the ability to observe regional fossil fuel emissions. The potential societal impact is vast since the applications can go far beyond the independent verification of emission inventories e.g. by providing necessary knowledge for regional or urban decision-making on mitigation action or by consulting industry during decarbonisation processes. The document will integrate all these aspects. It will be conducted in cooperation with the ESFRI and can be a pilot study for other environmental research infrastructures.

Final Data Management Plan

The project data management plan will be developed during the first six months of the project and show the close connection to the ICOS RI operational data management. It is envisaged that the data obtained in the framework of the RINGO project will be published under the same conditions as ICOS data. ICOS has decided to use the Creative Commons 4.0 BY license that ensures open and free data access.The final data mangement plan will also include archiving solutions.

Concept document on collaboration with countries and stations outside European Union

Collaboration with countries and stations outside European Union can be very valuable from network design and science point of views. The concept will take specific requirements of this cooperation into account.

Final Dissemination Strategy

The Dissemination Strategy for the RINGO project will be drafted in the first six months and updated twice during the course of the project. The final dissemination startegy will focus on the final results and deliverables achieved during the project.

Project Dissemination Strategy

The dissemination of results will be integrated in the general dissemination strategy of ICOS. A detailed dissemination plan will be developed during the first six months of the project. The Dissemination Strategy for the RINGO project will comprise the following target groups: scientists inside and outside ICOS, related research infrastructures, national stakeholders and ESFRI, European Commission, international organisations such as UNFCCC, IPCC, WMO, GEO, general public.

Initial Risk Management Plan.

The project risk management will be conducted in very close connection with the overall risk management of ICOS RI and will follow the same approach. Risk Management Plan is created during the first six months of the project implementation containing identification, classification (for probability and impact) and mitigation measures in consultation with the Work Package and Task Leaders. Risks are categorized using the scoring based on their probability of occurrence and impact on the overall project, deliverable and/or task. Mitigating actions will be tailored to limit the likelihood of the risks to occur and aimed to minimize the impact. Risk Management Plan will be monitored continuously throughout the project by Work Package and Task Leaders. Risk Management Plan will be updated twice a year in terms of risks identified and impact/likelihood and presented half-yearly to EB and yearly to General Assembly.

First Updated Risk Management Plan

Risk Management Plan will be updated twice a year in terms of risks identified and impact/likelihood and presented half-yearly to EB and yearly to General Assembly. Updated risk management plan will be reported at months 18. The project risk management will be conducted in very close connection with the overall risk management of ICOS RI and will follow the same approach.

Risk Management Plan will be monitored continuously throughout the project by Work Package and Task Leaders.

First Updated Project Dissemination

The Dissemination Strategy for the RINGO project will be drafted in the first six months and updated twice during the course of the project. The first update will take early developments in the project into account. The dissemination of results will be integrated in the general dissemination strategy of ICOS. A detailed dissemination plan will be developed during the first six months of the project. The Dissemination Strategy for the RINGO project will comprise the following target groups: scientists inside and outside ICOS, related research infrastructures, national stakeholders and ESFRI, European Commission, international organisations such as UNFCCC, IPCC, WMO, GEO, general public.

Initial Data Management Plan (DMP).

The project data management plan will be developed during the first six months of the project and show the close connection to the ICOS RI operational data management. It is envisaged that the data obtained in the framework of the RINGO project will be published under the same conditions as ICOS data. ICOS has decided to use the Creative Commons 4.0 BY license that ensures open and free data access.

Report on enhancing membership strategy for ICOS ERIC including the online Handbook for Stakeholders.

The report will have two parts. One describing the ICOS strategy to increase membership and extend the network. The second will be a handbook to introduce ICOS RI to stakeholders in countries that are interested in joining ICOS.

Final Risk Management Plan

Risk Management Plan will be updated twice a year in terms of risks identified and impact/likelihood and presented half-yearly to EB and yearly to General Assembly. Final risk management plan will focus on the final deliverables and transfer of results into the operations of ICOS RI.
