The demand for climate services - information about climate and climate change in a user-friendly
format - is increasing and leads to more and more
organizations offering climate services. It is our goal to assess this development at the European
scale and to improve the interactions between climate
service providers and users.
What are climate services? According to the European Research and Innovation Roadmap, the term climate service has a broad meaning, which covers the
transformation of climate-related data - together with other relevant information - into customised
products such as projections, forecasts, information,
trends, economic analysis, assessments (including technology assessment), counselling on best
practices, development and evaluation of solutions and any
other service in relation to climate that may be of use for the society at large. As such, these
services include data, information and knowledge that
support adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk management.

It only takes you 10 minutes. Based on
the questionnaire your organizations will become registered on the Climate Knowledge Hub and
therefore visible on the European landscape.
Being visible on the Climate Knowledge Hub makes it easier for users
to find you. Other researchers,
who are looking for your expertise when it comes to
applying for research funding, can also find you. To see the profiles of climate service providers
that are already part of the network, please click onto

The survey and mapping is conducted by the Climate Service Center Germany,
an institution of the Helmholtz-Center Geesthacht,
and the Climate Change Centre Austria.
This mapping is part of a large European project to establish an European Research Area for Climate Services covering 18 countries.
We invite you to distribute the invitation to the questionnaire to other organizations and
enterprises of which you think, they should be part of this network.
