European Commission Call: Copernicus Climate Change Service Evolution
The European Commission is calling proposals for Copernicus Climate Change Service Evolution.
The areas of R&I, which needs to be addressed to tackle the above expected outcomes are:
New and innovative coupled data assimilation methods to improve the next generation of global and regional reanalyses in the climate consistency of Earth-system reanalysis datasets
Underpinning science in predictability and new and innovative multi-model product generation to improve the realism (including representation of extremes and teleconnection patterns) of the current generation of climate prediction models.
The check will normally be done for the coordinator if the requested grant amount is equal to or greater than EUR 500 000, except for:
public bodies (entities established as a public body under national law, including local, regional or national authorities) or international organisations; and
cases where the individual requested grant amount is not more than EUR 60 000 (lowvalue grant).
Project results are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:
Enhanced quality and efficiency of the current service evolution to respond to
policy and/or user requirements
technological developments implementing the space regulation
complementing the challenges targeted by the Horizon Europe Mission on “Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation”
Development of efficient and reliable new product chains, calling for new paradigms in data fusion, data processing and data visualisation essential for the service are expected to handle more high-volume satellite data sets and product sets. The baseline is to preserve continuity of what has been achieved while keeping the service modern and attractive
Development of new algorithms and processing chains preparing for the use of new types of space observation data (being from new Sentinels, other contributing missions or ESA Earth Explorer missions) in order to allow the development of new products or the improvement of existing products.
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be established in one of the eligible countries, i.e.:
the Member States of the European Union, including their outermost regions;
the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) linked to the Member States;
eligible non-EU countries:
countries associated to Horizon Europe
low- and middle-income countries
