2nd JPI Climate Scoping Forum Symposium

The second JPI Climate online Scoping Forum "Providing Knowledge for a climate neutral and resilient Europe" was held on 9-10 of December, 2020 with key players of the European climate research and policy community to explore how best to support climate policy in the context of the European Green Deal and Horizon Europe with its climate related Missions. The event took place successfully with about 150 participants for the high level meeting on 9 December.

Day two on 10 December was attended by around 80 participants with a high level of engagement and interaction. Two interactive sessions on co-designing research for multi-sectoral, multi-facetted risk assessment proposing various topics were organised in a virtual world café setting as well as a series of parallel sessions on Researching financial markets and investment strategies, Understanding the issue of negative emissions, Climate predictability and Quest for new social science.

The Conference was hosted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union. 

The Central Secretariat is collecting the material such as presentations and videos (including authorisations) and will publish them here in the website.

You can find the programme of our ONLINE forum.

The public event on 9th of December was webcast by using YouTube live streaming

Here is a flavor of what we proposed:

Session A: Co-designing research for multi-sectoral, multi-facetted risk assessment

World Café session: Next level of Climate Services research break-out groups (two rounds of 40 min):

1. How to accelerate inter- and trans-disciplinary research for adaptation and mitigation?
2. Best practices for stakeholder involvement for the development of Climate Services
3. What type of research should JPI Climate support to be complementary to other initiatives and to enhance coherence, impact and uptake of knowledge?
4. How to improve quality assurance and standardization of Climate Services?
5. How to foster collaboration rather than competition between Climate Services (including issues of public/private partnerships)
6. Going the last mile: How to increase the societal value of Climate Services?
7. What is an operational Climate Service? How to reach that status and engage users?
