Strengthening International Cooperation on Climate Change Research
SINCERE, consistent with the EU research and innovation policy, will strengthen open international climate change research and innovation cooperation involving European partners in support of the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement, including in the broader context of the Sendai Framework for Disaster reduction and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. SINCERE aims to strengthen the delivery of the JPI Climate Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), building on existing collaborations, such as with other JPIs, the business sector and global financial institutions, and other key international research, policy and societal actors. Expanding JPI Climate to include member countries in Eastern Europe is a particular goal.
SINCERE is uniquely positioned to internationalise European climate change research and innovation collaboration, bringing together major national European research funding organizations represented in JPI Climate and a number of research performing organisations mandated by JPI Climate Governing Board members, along with new partners, including two international partners. SINCERE partners have contributed to setting up and implementing the JPI Climate SRIA.
