Project

CLAMER : Climate Change and Marine Ecosystem Research

Description:

The aim of this proposal is to make a synthesis of EU research results on the impacts of climate change on the marine environment and to make this knowledge and its socio-economic consequences better known to European citizens and society at large. Together with expert representatives of major Networks of Excellence, large EU projects and research networks, we will produce a state-of-the-art overview of European research results on the effects of climate change on marine environment. An up-to-date overview of public knowledge and perception on the effects of climate change on marine environments and their socio-economic consequences will be produced by means of polls and questionnaires. The results will be used to identify the main issues to be addressed and the best practices to be used during the outreach activities. The CLAMER Project provides an overview of EU Research Results on climate change impacts on the marine environment: * Out of 280 projects and 100 EU funded research projects * Linking associated socio-economic consequences * Underlining regional differences *A synthesis report
