From 2008 to 2012, Knowledge for Climate contributed to the development of the Joint Programming Initiative “Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe” (JPI Climate). In 2010, a proposal was developed and accepted, followed in 2011 by the development and adoption of a governance structure and a stra-tegic research agenda. The Initiative is now supported by 13 member and 2 ob-server countries as well as the European Commission and 4 other observer in-stitutions. In 2012, JPI Climate was formally launched in Brussels, financial sup-port was obtained for the Commission in the form of a Coordination and Sup-port Action (CSA), new steps were taken towards the alignment of climate re-search programmes in the participating countries, and first steps were taken towards the development of a first joint call, planned to be launched in 2013. This report summarizes the Dutch involvement in the programme in 2012, in-cluding the organization of meetings of the Governing and Transdisciplinary Advisory Boards, workshops and chairmanship of Working Group 4 on Decision-Support Methods and Tools. Because of strongly decreased priority of climate research in The Netherlands, no successful connection was yet made with NWO top sector research policy or other Dutch funding sources. The report discusses the future plans and collaborations.
