“In opting to join forces in the Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA) network, Austrian climate researchers have chosen a unique approach in the EU context. The common coordination across all disciplines warrants that the challenges posed by climate change can be mastered much more effectively in Austria.
The CCCA fosters knowledge transfer between science and public for the gain of both parties and in order to promote a sustainable climate dialogue.”
