Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe

The Joint Programming Initiative "Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe" (JPI Climate) is a pan-European intergovernmental initiative gathering European countries to jointly coordinate climate research and fund new transnational research initiatives that provide useful climate knowledge and services for post-COP21 Climate Action.

JPI Climate Magazine
JPI Climate E-magazine (released in December 2019) is the result of the work developed by SINCERE, in close collaboration with the coordinators from the research projects, and has the intention to increase the societal impact of these projects.


JPI Climate connects scientific disciplines, enables cross-border research and increases the science-practice interaction. JPI Climate contributes to the overall objective of developing a European Research Area and to underpin the European efforts in tackling the societal challenge of climate change.

Symposium report "Providing Knowledge for a climate neutral and resilient Europe" The report is based on the input and discussions of participating experts and stakeholders of the “2nd JPI Climate Scoping Forum Symposium” (SFS). The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research hosted the SFS under Germany’s EU Council Presidency on 9th/10th December 2020 as a Member of the Joint Programming Initiative JPI Climate. The Symposium report intends to stimulate further discussions at national and European level on solutions for “Providing knowledge for a climate neutral and resilient Europe”.

SINCERE booklet: Integrating science into climate change-policy making: an overview of inspiring real world practices The SINCERE project aims to strengthen international cooperation on climate change research. One of the project’s tasks involves gathering real world practices about integrating climate-change science into policy. A stocktake of real world inspiring practices is needed more than ever before. Whereas a growing amount of funding is being directed to climate change science projects, several challenges prevent some of these results from being directly usable in the policy making process. This document contributes to efforts to deal with these challenges. The document will be used to provide recommendations to JPI Climate about its future project portfolio.
