13th of GB meeting of JPI Climate in Cambridge, day 2

The second day started with a state of play presentation of the SRIA Scoping Forum by the JPI Climate CS. The GB discussed the content and structure of the Forum as this will lead to the strategic directions for JPI Climate, taking into account the outcomes of the Forum. The thematic header for the Forum should be "Science for the implementation of the Paris Agreement".

A state of play of the ERA4CS Task 7.4: Synergy and Mismatch Analysis: Knowledge gaps, complementarity and Redundancy was presented and discussed. 

The High Level Group on Joint Programming (GPC) is currently preparing an opinion paper on the "Future of Joint Programming to address societal challenges" in the context of the mid-term review of Horizon 2020 (H2020) and FP9. To support the preparation of this paper, the JPIs prepare their future strategies, including vision, main achievements and future goals. The JPI Climate Long-Term Strategy (LTS) was presented to be sent to the GPC.

The GB agreed to further develop LTS, considering the scenarios for the rest of the WP2018-2020 and the preparation of FP9, serving as the basis for a more comprehensive strategy for the next 5 years.

The plenary discussion finished with wrapping up the GB resolutions made during the meeting and the CS informed on the activities at the European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA2017) in Glasgow, from 5 to 9 June.

Patrick Monfray thanked the GB members for their commitment to JPI Climate and the CS staff for their engagement in supporting the coordination of this initiative.
