Climate Impact Research Co-ordination for a Larger Europe

Objective

Climate change is increasingly seen as one of the greatest issues facing the world in the 21st century, and Europe is taking a leading role in responding to its challenges. Whatever the success of mitigating climate change may be, certain impacts are unavoidable and European countries will need to adapt to those impacts. Their adaptation response must be informed by a coherent body of research and it is CIRCLE's prime objective to contribute to such efforts by aligning national research programmes using a complete application of the ERA-Net principles. As an ERA-Net SSA of partners from 7 countries, CIRCLE already established a sound basis for co-operation, an information base for national programme scientific content and management structures and through this preparatory work paved the way towards this CIRCLE CA with 17 countries taking part in it and remaining open for additional regional and na-tional pertinent programmes. The means of integration comprise four serial activities leading to an in-depth integration. The partners aim to LEARN about each others programmes, will PLAN how to address specific issues (e.g. legal and financial constraints and evaluation procedures) and then will start to CONNECT their research programmes by aligning their research agendas and management procedures in order to FULFIL an in-depth integration by providing options for collaborative research (four options, including a geographical return principle). Four cross-cutting activities will support this process. The coordinator will LEAD the action; the partners will address how to CONTINUE the integration beyond the life of the CA. The programmes will be enabled to GROUP on a geo-climatic/socioeconomic scale (e.g. Mediterranean countries, Nordic countries, Continental central/eastern Europe, Alpine/Mountainous countries and Atlantic coastal countries) to address specific regional transboundary impacts. Knowledge will be SPREAD to stakeholders by designed interaction processes.
