HORIZON EUROPE-CL5-2021-D1-01-03-A Spanish research private foundation is looking for SMEs/Associations/NGOs with expertise on scientific communication and environmental advocacy on Climate Change (Mediterranean area:North Africa / Middle East / Balkans)

Country of Origin: Spain
Reference Number: RDES20210701001
Publication Date: 6 July 2021

Summary

A Spanish research private foundation is preparing a proposal under the topic Horizon Europe CL5-2021-D1-01-03. The consortium counts with 2 research private entities and 1 SME. They are looking for SMEs/Associations/NGOs with expertise working in North Africa/Middle East/Balkans on scientific communication and on environmental advocacy. Role of partners: Social Sciences and Humanities on climate change, scientific communication / outreach expertise, psychology/anthropology/sociology expertise.

Description

The proposal aims to gather scientific data on climate change and translate it into validated strategies of dissemination towards society and policy, not only by creating direct actions and strategies of communication and outreach towards these two target groups, but by providing and uptaking resources, tools and methods already proven to be effective for behavioural changes in society and urgent action in policy. They will constantly update the input of data and EU funded projects’ results, and the output on communication factsheets and trainings to spread the disseminative potential of the EU research on climate change.

To achieve this, this proposal is aiming at designing and implementing a two-way transfer of knowledge, on climate change involving specially tailored science-to-society and science-to-policy transfers, by providing a working group that will pilot and validate the creation of a Mediterranean Center of Outreach on Climate Change.

Work plan structure will include from project management, to State-of-the-art, Identification and cooperation with relevant EU projects (ongoing and future), platforms, networks and tools; Climate Science Knowledge Synthesis, Analysis and identification of awareness levels and initiatives on the topic of climate change, Design and implementation of evidence-based dissemination actions, and sustainability and exploitation of results. We will provide visibility to national and local initiatives of climate action, thus our partners (from the Mediterranean área: Middle East, Balkans and North Africa) need to have a market knowledge of existing initiatives.

The consortium counts with 2 research private entitites and 1 SME. They are looking for SMEs/Associations/NGOs with expertise working in North Africa/Middle East/Balkans on scientific communication and on environmental advocacy (knowledge in situ of laws for climate change mitigation, contextual awareness of society on the topic).

Topic: HORIZON EUROPE-CL5-2021-D1-01-03 "Maximising the impact and synergy of European climate change research and innovation".
Call deadline:14 September 2021
Deadline for EOIs: 22 July 2021

Advantages and Innovations

The inclusion of transmediterranean entities and Climate Pacts Network (ambassadors), as well as social and cultural experts and EU Relevant projects, tools and platforms is basic, covering as well the potential diversity among the countries involved in the proposal.

Their work plan will include the knowledge synthesis that will address the state-of-the-art in (1) physical climate science understanding; (2) climate change impacts; (3) adaptation and mitigation and (4) climate change policy.

Through all this process, they aim to (1) identify territorial alliances to ensure a decentralized cooperation with the purpose of planetary health and preparedness on the field of climate change; (2) identify the historical context and current strategies and reports to tackle potential societal crisis due to climate change, and provide solutions already concluded by EU funded research that proves to be excellent and can contribute to global cooperation beyond borders; (3) generate global behavioural changes towards climate change acceptance and urgent action to tackle already existing climate change effects, such as drought, fires, rise of temperatures, climate migrations….

Stage Of Development

Proposal under development

Requested partner

They are looking for partners located in: (1) Middle East (2) Balkans (3) North Africa with expertise either in Climate change research (SSH or physical sciences), Scientific communication and/or outreach, and psychology or anthropology linked to climate change. The consortium is aiming to have representatives that can cover these expertise across the mentioned regions.

Work plan structure will include from project management, to State-of-the-art, Identification and cooperation with relevant EU projects (ongoing and future), platforms, networks and tools; Climate Science Knowledge Synthesis, Analysis and identification of awareness levels and initiatives on the topic of climate change, Design and implementation of evidence-based dissemination actions, and sustainability and exploitation of results. They will provide visibility to national and local initiatives of climate action, thus their partners (from the Mediterranean area) need to have a market knowledge of existing initiatives.
