The Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (Fondazione CMCC) is a leading research centre on climate change modelling, impact assessment and societal responses. CMCC’s mission is to provide sound, reliable, rigorous, and timely scientific evidence to inform processes stimulating sustainable growth, protecting the environment, and developing evidence-based climate mitigation and adaptation actions. The multi-, inter-, trans- disciplinary team and expertise make it possible to deliver in-depth analyses of climate impacts on agriculture, ecosystems, coasts, water resources, health, and economics. CMCC provides services for Copernicus Climate Change and Marine Environmental. Monitoring, hosts the IPCC focal point in Italy, coordinates the competence network of the European Environment Agency (Topic Centre on climate change, impacts and adaptation, ETC-CCA), and provides expertise to various services of the European Commission, including Climate Action, Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid, Environment, and JRC. CMCC benefits from the extensive applied research experience of its members and institutional partners: Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV); Università del Salento; Centro Italiano di Ricerche Aerospaziali (CIRA S.c.p.a.); Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia; Università di Sassari; Università della Tuscia; Università di Bologna; Politecnico di Milano;
The CMCC portfolio of research projects includes more than 400 funded projects of which a large share is EU-funded.
As a central player in the EU Climate adaptation research and policy work CMCC is well equipped to lead the task on EU level community building. With experience in multiple EU projects on climate service delivery including business models and participation in various Copernicus contracts, it has a good profile to lead the work package on business models for Climate services.
