Call for Contributors for Special Theme of ERCIM News: Climate-Resilient Society

On behalf of the MAIA project:

The recently published sixth IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) synthesis report has some good news: there are promising developments in low-carbon technologies, the national commitments to reduce their emissions are becoming more ambitious and more effort has been made to help communities adapt to the effects of climate change (e.g., Green Cities Europe). The amount of funding committed to climate change resilience and carbon-neutral development is also increasing.

To mitigate the negative impacts on climate change and our planet, there is a need to reach out to all the stakeholders and communities through enhanced climate related knowledge and sharing of knowledge, motivation and engagement of people (from existing EU-Climate Change projects to policy makers, private stakeholders, citizens and the scientific community)

This special ERCIM theme aims to put a spotlight on recent Research, Innovation and Implementation activities that could be taken up by the EU Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change, with focus on actionable knowledge, tools and solutions for planning, implementation, and progress monitoring.

How to get involved?

We invite ongoing or already finished EU projects, as well as innovative companies and regions with valuable experiences in Climate Change adaptation and mitigation to share their knowledge and experiences on adaptation and mitigation needs, gaps, responses, solutions, and mitigation pathways.

Thus, we look for contributions regarding actionable knowledge, tools and solutions that could expand to various domains/sectors like:

  • Energy
  • Water supply (inc. sewers)
  • Forestry
  • Manufacturing
  • Transport
  • Construction
  • Real estate
  • Information Communication Technologies
  • Human health
  • Tourism
  • Agriculture
  • Financial and insurance
  • Citizen and stakeholder engagement activities
  • Gender Equality and diversity
  • Other climate change related research is very welcome

Guidelines and Deadlines:

Please read the guidelines below before submitting an article. A Word template for ERCIM News articles is also available for download.

Submissions close on the 30th of August. Please submit your articles to: Peter Kunz [email protected] Athina Lykos [email protected] and Sobah Petersen [email protected]

We are looking forward to receiving your articles!

We aim to post all comments and forum posts, but will not post anything that we consider unrelated  to the topic under discussion. Your comment will be reviewed before publishing.
