The deadline for submission of the pre-proposals for the Topic A of the ERA4CS has been extended until 30 June at 23:59 (Brussels time).
All applicants have the opportunity to still modify their proposal (even if they locked their proposals to not face any disadvantage).
The overall objective of this call is to enhance user adoption of and satisfaction with Climate Services (incl. adaptation services). Improving the quality of Climate Services is also within the scope of this call. At the same time ERA4CS aims to improve the scientific expertise on Climate Change risks and adaptation options, and to connect that knowledge with decision-making, e.g. by developing and assessing climate adaptation strategies and pathways at different scales (regions, cities, catchments, vulnerable sectors, etc.).
To improve user adoption of and satisfaction with CS, the overall aim is to research and advance CS development by supporting scientific research for developing better tools, methods and standards on how to produce, transfer, communicate and use reliable climate information to cope with current and future climate variability and change across national boundaries.
The present joint call will be financed by ERA4CS partners from 18 countries, contributing either by cash funding or by in-kind re-sources, plus co-funding from the European Commission (Grant Agreement reference 690462). A total budget of about 72 Mio € has been provisionally allocated for this call to support 3 years research projects.
