H2020 Climate Action – CORDIS results packs
Horizon 2020 Green Deal Call
Applicants to the Green Deal Call and organisations interested by future EU funding programmes should have a look at the CORDIS results packs on eco-innovation.
CORDIS Results Packs are EU publications aiming to support the European Commission’s Strategy for an effective dissemination and exploitation of Horizon 2020 research results. These rich multilingual collections of articles present results of highly successful projects in order to bring them to specialised audiences in a specific theme. The Results Packs may serve as inspiration and good examples to potential applicants for the incoming calls, but also to help to bring exploitable results to potential users and national authorities.
The Results Pack “How climate services can help decision taking in a changing climate: Stories from Horizon 2020 projects” aims to raise awareness of climate services among decision-makers by show casing fourteen H2020 funded projects and the help they can provide in efforts to adapt to climate change. An added value is the presentation of results through the eyes of actual end-users who were involved in the development and testing of the tools to give first-hand experience of benefits and caveats.
The stories presented capture a wide range of possible uses of climate services, such as insurance decisions, disaster risk, water and snow management, urban and regional planning, crop and pest management, assuring energy and healthcare, etc.
The Results Pack on “Environmental Observations: Informing citizens and supporting policymaking through innovative applications” showcases the outcomes of nine Horizon 2020-funded projects that have developed user-oriented EO-based applications, creating benefits for citizens and supporting evidence-based policymaking.
European EO assets, actors and initiatives are coordinated by EuroGEO, Europe’s contribution to the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and its Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). The projects in this results pack have been selected based on progress towards full implementation or role in shaping EuroGEO. The pack will be updated with more projects in the next years.
The “Climate neutrality: Pathways for achieving the European Green Deal Objectives” Results Pack features eight Climate Action projects funded under the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5 “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials”.
Their outcomes show how policies and financing initiatives can steer the EU towards climate neutrality by embracing the complex interplay between the energy system, the economy and consumer behaviour.
Natural resources- CORDIS results packs:
The Results Pack “Nature-based solutions: Transforming cities, enhancing well-being” features nine Nature Based Solutions projects funded under the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5 “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials” managed by EASME Horizon 2020 Environment and Resources.
These projects have developed important tools and expertise to address these challenges through nature-based solutions for building sustainable, resilient and prosperous societies.
