The EU is a major investor and player in both climate change and health research. The EU also supports global research and innovation collaboration, including that done by the Belmont Forum - a partnership of funding organisations, international science councils, and consortia committed to the advancement of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science. Bringing together climate change and health research has been a particular challenge in Europe that requires coordination and support. Previous similar actions proved to be instrumental in providing the necessary support and the high degree of coordination within the European landscape and beyond.
Actions should develop and provide support mechanisms to advance and further boost the global added value of the Belmont Forum’s Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Climate, Environment and Health and its inputs to the relevant EU policy-making processes. This should include the promotion and prioritisation of research and innovation areas during transdisciplinary conferences, meetings and workshops, capacity building related to relevant stakeholder involvement, cross-fertilisation activities amongst Belmont Forum, EU- funded and relevant nationally funded projects, synthesis of their results, with a particular focus on policy making, such as knowledge based policy briefs, dissemination, communication and outreach.
Planned opening date: 12 November 2019
