• The Norwegian

• The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) is a private foundation and a leading centre of research and consultancy on engineering-related geosciences. NGI provides expertise with regard to the technical aspects of EVOKED related to flooding, disaster risk reduction and coastal management, modelling different climate scenarios and GIS capabilities. NGI is project leader in EVOKED, responsible for quality assurance and leader for WP4 Co-Evalaute. • The Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) is a national authority with responsibility for geotechnical issues, including landslides, erosion and the consequences of flooding and extreme weather events. The policy-relevant knowledge produced and mediated by SGI comprises sustainable land use planning, foundation engineering, polluted land / sediments and remediation, as well as climate change adaptation. SGI is leader for WP1 Co-Design. • Deltares is an independent institute for applied research in the field of water and subsurface focusing mainly on deltas, coastal regions and river basins. Managing these densely populated and vulnerable areas is complex, which is why Deltares works closely with governments, businesses, other research institutes and universities at home and abroad. Deltares is leader for WP3 Co-Validate. • Christian-Albrechts University Kiel (CAU) is a public institution of the German State of Schleswig-Holstein. The Department of Geography at has a long tradition in coastal research, which has been further strengthened with the establishment of the Coastal Risks and Sea-Level Rise (CRSLR) research group of the “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. The research of CRSLR focuses on understanding how coastal systems respond to combined pressures from natural and anthropogenic forcings. CAU is leader for WP2 Co-Develop.

Integrated approach for the development across Europe of user oriented climate indicators for GFCS sectors: agriculture, disaster risk reduction, energy, health, water and tourism (INDECIS) 15/09/2017–15/09/2020 (36 months) (under construction) @INDECIS A project funded under ERA4CS Your elevator pitch Climate Change and Climate Variability impact most, if not all, economic sectors and society. INDECIS intends to integrate 16 European institutions to convert meteorological observations into top quality climate datasets and climate indices, as a foundation to codevelop and communicate climate services in cooperation with priority sectors ( Agriculture, Disaster Risk Reduction, Health, Tourism, Water, Energy). 5 key words to be “googled” INDECIS, data quality, data homogeneity, climate indices, climate services, codevelopment, economic sectors About you and your interest Dr. Enric Aguilar Anfrons Professor at URV’s Geography Department, Senior Researcher at URV’s Centre for Climate Change, member of the World Meteorological Organization Executive Council Panel of Experts on Education and Training, Leader of the WMO’s Commission for Climatology Expert Team on Education and Training, responsible for the design of Competencies for the Provision of Climate Services.
