ADAPTATION FRONTIERS - Conference on European Climate Change Adaptation Research and Practice - CIRCLE-2 FINAL CONFERENCE - Watch it via Livestreaming

10-12 of March 2014



Objectives: The objective of this final CIRCLE conference is to share the results of 10 years of European cooperation in climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation research, and to pave the way for the development of new research in support of climate change adaptation in Europe in the next decade. 

The first two days of the conference will focus on knowledge sharing and science-practice interactions between junior and senior researchers, policy-makers, research funders and practitioners. The final day of the conference looks forward, discusses which priorities for national research programmes, Joint Programming Initiatives and Horizon 2020 emanate from salient adaptation policy developments. Within the constraints of the conference venue, everyone committed to adaptation research or policy in Europe, including those involved in CIRCLE-2 activities, is welcome to this event.  It is the CIRCLE legacy for future research, research funding and research policy on climate change adaptation in Europe.
