Climate Services at work - ERA4CS Projects exchange and networking lab

EASME Horizon 2020 - JPI Climate ERA4CS project networking event 30 November 2017, Brussels


INNOVA OCTOBER 2017-SEPTEMBER 2020 (under construction) A project funded under ERA4CS Your elevator pitch In INNOVA particular emphasis will be placed on cutting-edge climate services research by (1) a combination of social (i.e. those processes and outcomes focused on addressing societal goals) and economic innovation, (i.e., prioritization and novel viable business models), both technological (i.e., drought monitoring, green infrastructure, flood protection measures) and non-technological (i.e,. changes in procedures, management systems, governance structures) elements that can lead to employment and sustainable growth; (2) the development of technological and performance assessment for risk management and extreme risk response options, fostering adaptive innovation; and (3) monitoring the performance, effectiveness and scalability of the INNOVA approaches, including post-implementation requirements (like regulating instruments and business models), and operational and organizational/governance needs. In this way, the project contributes in an innovative way to understanding the key role of business models and performance monitoring, in enhancing innovation, market uptake and replicability of climate services. The direct engagement of a broad range of relevant stakeholders as beneficiaries of the project that co-develop climate and risk management strategies in key economic sectors will ensure the upscaling and uptake of the project outputs.
