Climate change remains a key and urgent global challenge. Research and innovative solutions are an essential part of the response to the array of complex issues and questions posed climate change. These encompass fundamental sciences, technologies and socio-economic solutions. These solutions are needed to inform policy and actions to mitigation emissions of greenhouse gases which are the key drivers of climate and to address emerging and ongoing impacts of climate change, in order to increase resilience and reduce risks of impacts. The JPI process recognises that greater and improved outcomes can be obtained through sharing resources and expertise to progress understanding and achieve the required outcomes. The JPI Climate's Strategic Research Agenda focuses on four interconnected research themes:

  • Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions
  • Researching Climate Service
  • Development and Deployment
  • Sustainable Transformations of Society in the Face of Climate Change
  • Improving Tools for Decision-Making under Climate Change

The presentation will review the objectives and structure of JPI Climate, learning from the first Joint Call in which Ireland participated and consider plans for its major initiative on climate services which is linked to Horizon 2020 call in 2015.
