Call on "Climate Impact Research, Economic Assessment and Pathways to Sustainability"
The ERA-NET Consortium AXIS (Assessment of Cross(X)-sectoral climate Impacts and pathways for Sustainable transformation) was created to promote cross-boundary, cross-community research with the overall goal to improve coherence, integration and robustness of climate impact research and connect it to societal needs. AXIS aims to overcome boundaries between science communities through promoting inter- or transdisciplinary research projects.
AXIS announces a launch of a Joint Transnational Call for proposals on 9 of April 2018. It will be supported by at least 10 funding organisations from 9 European countries and co-funded by the European Commission (under Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement reference 776608). The call will have an indicative budget of EUR 15 000 000 to EUR 17 000 000 to support international research projects of a duration of up to 3 years.
The AXIS joint call is structured into three interlinked themes:
- Cross-sectoral and cross-scale climate change impact assessments
- Integration of biophysical climate change impact estimates with economic models
- Developing pathways to achieve the long-term objectives of the Paris Agreement, taking into account interactions with SDGs closely linked to SDG 13 (“climate action”).
