The Joint Programming Initiative “JPI Climate” launches its second ERA-Net to boost transnational research on climate impacts. The call is directed to research partners in Austria, Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland, Moldova, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden.
ERA-Net AXIS (Assessment of cross - sectoral climate impacts and pathways for sustainable transformation) aims to promote cross-boundary, cross-community research with the overall goal to improve coherence, integration and robustness of climate impact research and connect it to societal needs. To this effect, AXIS aims to overcome boundaries between science communities through inter- or transdisciplinary research projects.
AXIS is a successor of the previous JPI Climate ERA-Net on Climate Services (ERA4CS). Both are part of the efforts of JPI Climate to contribute to the implementation of the European Roadmap for Climate Services. Within AXIS the goals are to improve the “Integration of physical and socioeconomic data and information” (Challenge 3, Activity 3.1a) and “establishing confidence in Climate Services, and the role of uncertainty in climate services and decision-support systems” (Challenge 3, Activity 3.1c).
