Funds for: Strengthening climate knowledge and enable informed societal transformation to mitigate and adapt to climate change
Main beneficiaries: Research centres

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Strengthen climate knowledge and enable informed societal transformation to mitigate and adapt to climate change

Priorities
* Strengthening the understanding of climate variability and extremes resulting from the interactions with the oceans such as extratropical and tropical cyclones, and how they are affected by climate change on a range of time scales; 
* Improving the representation of air-sea interactions and physical ocean processes in Earth System Models to better represent small-scale non-linear processes as well as water and energy cycles. Model-data analyses using innovative approaches will be welcome;
* Improving estimates of climate change induced modifications of ocean physics and ocean chemistry, associated with biogeochemical cycles, including ocean acidification and carbon sequestration

Among financed actions 
* Research activities aiming at building and transferring new knowledge, as well as integrating such knowledge on the industrial community or society;
* Mobility and training actions;
* Education initiatives/courses on new identified skills/to fill an educational gap;
* Specific initiatives (e.g. on-field training) linking human capacities and research infrastructures
