European Commission workshop “A European Roadmap for Climate Services”, Brussels, 17 March 2015

This Commission workshop is the first public occasion to present the European Roadmap for Climate Services to stakeholders and key players in the field, share views and experiences on key issues, discuss the challenges and opportunities, and move towards its implementation.  It is aimed in particular at organisations that either produce or supply climate information and intelligence, or are interested as actual or potential users of climate services.

[The Commission attributes a broad meaning to the term “climate services”, which covers the transformation of climate-related data – together with other relevant information – into customised products such as projections, forecasts, information, trends, economic analysis, assessments (including technology assessment), counselling on best practices, development and evaluation of solutions and any other service in relation to climate that may be of use for the society at large.]

The Roadmap, which will be published by the end of February 2015, has been produced by a Commission ad hoc Expert Group, established as one of the main outcomes of the first workshop “Towards a European Market for Climate Services” (18 March 2014). It is not a Commission document, but relied on the involvement of a larger supporting group – including the EC services, Copernicus and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology’s Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) – and on a focused stakeholders’ consultation.  The Roadmap is expected to offer a coherent and focused framework for action, able to leverage on existing initiatives at EU (such as Horizon 2020) and national level, as well as to provide a support framework to local initiatives.

Online registration, draft agenda and further information are available here: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/REGISTRATIONClimateServ

Deadline to register is 10 March, but early registration is recommended as places are limited.
