What have we done?

The H2020 SINCERE (Strengthening INternational Cooperation on climatE change Research) project, consistent with the EU research and innovation policy, strengthened open international climate change research and innovation cooperation involving European partners in support of the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement, including in the broader context of the Sendai Framework for Disaster reduction and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

SINCERE aimed to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), building on existing collaborations, such as with other JPIs, the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors.

    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 booklet will be used to provide recommendations to JPI Climate about its future project portfolio.   Climate data and climate services for the finance sector: challenges, opportunities and experiences This blog summarises the webinar dialogue on climate data and climate services for the finance sector: challenges, opportunities and experiences, that was organised by ClimatEurope and the SINCERE project in April 2020. During the webinar discussion took place on how climate change is entering into the financial arena and how financial institutes are supporting their clients to become more climate friendly. JPI Climate funded ClimInvest project and other speakers shared their experience in developing climate services for the finance sector. The blog is especially interesting for climate services research funders, developers and financial actors that deal with climate change. It will give insight in ongoing climate services initiatives and highlights new opportunities for finance sector – climate science collaboration. During the webinar many questions were asked and answers given, read Q&A report here. 


  JPI Climate E-magazine
This E-magazine is the result of the work developed by the SINCERE, in close collaboration with the coordinators from the research projects, and has the intention to increase the societal impact of these projects, by disseminating their results and achievements in ways that are understandable to lay audiences.
Assessing local impacts of sea-level rise at the shore for mitigation and adaptation
On March 18 & 19, 2019, JPI Climate Action Group Next Generation of Climate Sciences in Europe & JPI Oceans with the support of SINCERE, Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), Deltares Netherlands, and CNRM Météo-France jointly organised a scoping workshop on “Assessing local impacts of sea-level rise at the shore for mitigation and adaptation”. 

"Bringing adaptation solutions to life: Inspiring climate adaptation action today for a resilient future".
The 5th European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA 2021) took place from 25 May to 22 June 2021. A series of 9 webinars was organised from 25 May to 10 June, in the run-up to a high-level event on 22 June. This event was hosted by the European Commission, back to back with the annual European Research & Innovation Days (23-24 June). Go to the ECCA 2021 platform where you can find the programme .

JPI Climate side-event at ECCA Conference 2019
The "Story of Climate Change" as a partner event was organised at the ECCA 2019 Conference in Lisbon, Portugal. SINCERE project team participated in the organisation of side event and actively contributed to the activities offered at the booth during the conference on 28-31 of May 2019.. The side-event "Climate services: state of affairs, relevance for users and the way forward" was held on 27 May and gathered 80 participants including researchers, academics, practitioners, financial operators, policymakers, private sector and research funders that invest in climate service research. The participants expressed a great interest in the role of climate services in adaption to climate change.
