Climate Change Impact assessment and related Adaptation research are emerging scientific and policy areas in Europe. Several international political frameworks, commitments and initiatives are currently acting as main scientific-technological drivers and shaping research activities. Interactions between science and policy have developed into unprecedented levels of intensity. Expert scientific advice has been increasingly called upon to enable informed decision-making, but linking scientific knowledge and authoritative political decision-making is not a straightforward task. Coordinating nationally developed knowledge (typically via research programmes) with European and international frameworks is a growing demand. Making sure that political investments such as the ones related to climate Adaptation are cost effective is a continuous need. Global challenges such as Climate Change makes the coordination of high quality research an absolute imperative to support national and European actions.
CIRCLE-2 is focused on the interface between Climate Change science and policy. Through the promotion of networking activities it aims to maximise the degree to which research outcomes address both national and European climate policy needs. A structuring impact on the European Climate Change research landscape can only be achieved if joint research funding is put into practice and its results transferred in effective ways.
CIRCLE-2 aims to further reinforce the coordination and cooperation between national and regional climate research programmes. It is CIRCLE-2’s intention to contribute to these efforts along three complementary ways:
• Support a common research agenda and joint programming foresight activities (WP DESIGN) helping to structure a common language and framework for policy relevant Adaptation research;
• Fund Adaptation research though transnational joint calls and other joint activities (WP FUND) contributing to a durable cooperation between European climate research programmes and their funders;
• Make available existing knowledge on Adaptation and foster the production of research along identified needs (WP SHARE) contributing to the development of a European knowledge base on Climate Change. Vision of the CIRCLE ERA-NET:
• To coordinate European transnational research funding on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (CCIVA) and to facilitate the transfer of research outcomes that European and national decision makers need to design effective yet economically efficient Adaptation initiatives and strategies.
• To share experiences and lessons learnt on CCIVA research funding and management and on the development of national and regional Adaptation practices.
• To encourage international cooperation with non-European countries and organisations as well as the involvement of countries with less diverse CCIVA research programmes. Objectives of the CIRCLE ERA-NET:
• Establish a research funding network oriented towards Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (CCIVA) policy-relevant questions.
• Facilitate cooperation among Europe’s national and regional CCIVA research programmes and their funders/managers.
• Promote a common strategic agenda on relevant CCIVA research areas and coordinate it with European framework programmes, policies and objectives.
• Design and Fund joint initiatives and joint calls for transnational CCIVA research proposals on identified knowledge gaps or needs.

Mapping

The CIRCLE-2 ERA-NET works on the following mapping and scoping activities:

• Task 3.3 – ‘CIRCLE-2 strategic analysis of climate adaptation research-policy landscape in Europe’.
To map all potential research performers organizations in Europe on Climate Change Adaptation.

• Climate Adaptation Infobase (http:// infobase.circle-era.eu/).
This InfoBase includes research and applied projects funded from 2005 onwards, at national an...

To map all potential research performers organizations in Europe on Climate Change Adaptation.

• Climate Adaptation Infobase (http:// infobase.circle-era.eu/).
This InfoBase includes research and applied projects funded from 2005 onwards, at national and local levels, as well as transnational projects funded by CIRCLE-2.

• Workshops (http://www.circle-era.eu/np4/ workshops).
All the workshops organized within CIRCLE-2, it presentations and outputs.

• Climate Adaptation Research Agenda (CARA) (http://www.circle-era.eu/np4/ CARA).
Provide European, national and sub-national actors involved in climate adaptation research with a common independent strategic view from CIRCLE-2 partners and contributing partners.
