About the workshop

During the event, the final CLIPC ClimateClimate
Climate in a narrow sense is usually defined as the average weather, or more rigorously, as the statistical description in terms of the mean and variability of relevant quantities over a period of time ranging from months to thousands or millions of years. The classical period for averaging these variables is 30 years, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization. The relevant quantities are most often surface variables such as temperature, precipitation and wind. Climate in a wider sense is the state, including a statistical description, of the climate system.
information portal will be presented and the different features tested 'live' by participants in various breakout sessions. The usefulness and future opportunities of the climate information portal and the impact indicator toolbox will be discussed.
Broadening the discussion in a session with a panel of key people in European climate research and policy as well as the audience, the workshop will then move to challenges for the next generation climate servicesclimate services
Climate services involve the production, translation, transfer, and use of climate knowledge and information for decision making, policy and planning. The provision of climate information (observational, forecasts or projections) in a way that is relevant to climate-sensitive users, can inform decisions and can reduce the risk of misinterpretation.
 Both users and providers of climate and impact data are encouraged to participate.

Objectives of the final workshop:

  • To present CLIPC portal and discuss its usefulness
  • To discuss opportunities to put the CLIPC climate information portal and impact indicator toolbox into wider use
  • To identify challenges for next generation climate services (projects), discuss the required steps to further improve data access and use
