Proceeding European Joint Efforts on Climate Service Products
Climate service is obliged to develop and provide information products, data and advices based on past, present and future climate for the business community, policies and public institutions. The information about climate, climate change and its impacts on natural on human systems is tailored to suit specific user needs including user specific guidance of how to use the information. There are several European organizations involved in climate services. Although institutional arrangements differ, the climate service objectives and climate service customers are rather similar. There are various ongoing incorporating activities for climate related communities with different focus e.g. the Joint Program Initiative (JPI) on climate or the European Climate Service Initiative. Still, with regard to Horizon 2020, the climate service community requires a first network for a potential proposal in 2015 and to discuss the development and impact of upcoming climate service products. The session will be informal but is intended to proceed plans for joint activities in the development of prototypes of climate service products in regards to following questions: - How to collect ideas of prototypes from the community in an effective manner without duplication of efforts? - How to organize the transition from a prototype to the phase of operationalization of a product?
