Joint Programming Initiative Climate - "Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe"
06.11.2012 Museum of Natural Sciences, Brussels
Climate Change is a complex reality, which affects European society at
large. Understanding and responding to climate change requires
coordinated and large-scale European efforts, in research, innovation
and in governance. The Joint Programming Initiative “Connecting Climate
Knowledge for Europe (JPI Climate)” is a strategic platform for aligning
of national research priorities in the area of climate research and for
launching joint activities.
Its aims are to contribute to a
coordinated knowledge development by improving the scientific expertise
on climate change and connecting that knowledge to decision-making and
link it to eminent political and practical concerns, such as climate
risks and adaptation options in climate-vulnerable sectors, mitigation
policies or investment strategies and technological innovation.
cordially invite you to participate in this first official presentation
of JPI Climate. Please, join us to discuss with several renowned
speakers - including Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate
Action, - the question of how we can effectively tighten the link
between science, practice and innovation in climate research. The
presentations and discussions will be followed by a reception.
