Maximizing the synergy of European research Governance and Innovation for Climate Action
MAGICA maximizes the synergies between infrastructure investments and initiatives of climate change research and innovation across the European Research Area (ERA). This is done by building upon and further implementing the Mission of JPI Climate in support to the international and European climate agenda (including the European Green Deal and Adaptation Strategy). Go to the website.
MAGICA aims to accelerate the development, provision and exchange of knowledge from research and innovation to inform and support policy-making and climate actions. It will do this via improved coordination of on-going and future climate initiatives at transnational, national, regional and municipal levels and more efficient use of resources.
MAGICA is a 4-year transnational project launched in June 2022, funded by Horizon EU and is the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) for JPI Climate. It involves 24 organisations from 13 countries. Among its extensive outreach and engagement activities, MAGICA will stage key European climate events including:
- ECCA (European Climate Change Adaption) Conferences in 2023 and 2025
- Climate Neutrality Forums
- Sea Level Rise Conference (with JPI Oceans).
MAGICA will be based on a circular and iterative interactions among the strategic, scientific and societal components of climate change research and innovation. A scientific arena will be created to enhance the debate and discussion within the scientific community on climate R&I priorities, that will be synthesized in a Joint Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda on climate change for ERA 2025-2034. In addition, the creation of a regular forum with European Ministries of Research and Climate and other funding bodies will foster the coordination of the different national research policies in order to meet the ERA-wide priorities and needs identified by the scientific community.
MAGICA is an Horizon Europe Coordination and Supporting Action financed under the call –HORIZON-CL5-2021-D1-01 ‘Climate sciences and responses’.
Project number 101056920.
- Work package 1: “Coordination and Management” will tackle administrative and coordination measures.
- Work package 2: “Strengthening the ERA” is dedicated to the strategic dimension of the project and will entail the activities of coordination among research policies and programmes across Europe.
- Work package 3: “Realizing the ERA” focuses on the scientific dimension of MAGICA. It encompasses activities dedicated to building a research and innovation agenda for climate science in the ERA and to integrate the open science approach into the climate scientific community.
- Work package 4: “Science-Policy-Society Dialogue” represents the societal dimension of the project. It includes activities to exchange with several stakeholders.
- Work package 5: “Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation” is dedicated to communication activities that serve all other work packages.
