CCCA Working Groups
CCCA working groups are set up by the CCCA Management Board to discuss and work on specific projects, activities, or matters of strategic importance for the CCCA in a broader context.
There are individual CCCA Board Members responsible for the working groups. The working group members are determined by the CCCA Management Board; the working group members determine the head of the group at the first working group meeting. The head of a working group coordinates the group and in collaboration with the working group representative he or she reports regularly to the Management Board on the progress and finding of the group.
The CCCA working groups are supported by the operational units of the CCCA.
The following working groups have been established by the CCCA Management Board:
Working Group for the Promotion of Young Scientists
The Working Group for the Promotion of Young Researchers aims at interconnecting and promoting young researchers and scientists in the CCCA member institutions. The working group thus also receives financial support from the CCCA.
In connection with the 2016 Climate Day, this budget was used to organize the first ‘CCCA Networking Day’ on 06.04.2016. The Networking Day offers a wide range of content- and methodology-oriented discussion groups which provide young researchers with the opportunity to interact with experienced senior scientists.
Besides the CCCA Networking Day, further CCCA services for young researchers are meant to be established. The CCCA welcomes ideas and participants as well as suggestions for further activities for young researchers; please direct your input to the head of the working group, Sebastian Seebauer (firstname.lastname@example.org), or to Angelika Wolf (email@example.com).
Head of the working group: Sebastian Seebauer
Working group representative on the CCCA Management Board: Michiko Hama
APCC Working Group (Austrian Panel on Climate Change)
In order to continue the APCC project, the CCCA Management Board and General Assembly have decided that the CCCA will serve as project management organization and provide the necessary funds. The APCC working group is concerned with actively continuing the APCC and with future output. The working group is responsible for developing the criteria for APCC products and will support their developing process. Further information is available here (German only).

Science Plan Working Group
The science plan working group was established in the initial phase of the CCCA in order to draw up the Science Plan for Climate Research in Austria. It has been reactivated in 2016 and is responsible for finalizing the science plan.

Data Centre Working Group
The Data Centre working group was established in order to involve CCCA members in the development and design of the CCCA Data Centre. Currently, the Data Centre is undergoing a significant transition from conceptual planning to visible and presentable implementation of the Data Centres functions. The Data Centre working group was established to discuss the concepts and first prototypes with the Data Centre team. Further information is available here (login required).
