Project timeline
Start:
October 2017
Duration:
36 months
End:

General Information
The primary objectives of INNOVA are: 1) the co-development of innovative solutions to transform climate risks into opportunities actively engaging a variety of stakeholders and 2) the identification of measures for evaluating and monitoring, up-scaling, and replicating efficient current and future innovative climate services for decision making on managing climate risks taking into account their added value. The project aims to consolidate knowledge from leading earlier and on-going European initiatives and to distil specific complementary climate services essential for the enhancement and adoption of innovative solutions to support climate risk management. The project will provide prototypes including viable business models and practical innovation frameworks, and recommendations for creating and up-scaling opportunities through adaptive co-management approaches.
The project is coordinated by HZG and is funded in the frame of the Horizon 2020 ERANET ERA4CS (European Research Area for Climate Services).
