The Baltic University Research and Projects Office (BUPRaP) and the European School of Sustainability Science and Research are preparing a project bid for the H2020 Call "Climate resilience of European coastal cities and settlements", whose ID is LC-CLA-1.

Our project will, consistent with the aims of the Call, develop approaches and methods to foster climate change resilience of in European coastal cities and settlements. It will last 4 years and has a total budget of Euro 10m. We expect a set of 20-22 partners split among cities and universities.The deadline for first stage is 13th February 2020.

We are, at this point in time, contacting potential organisations acros the Baltic with proven expertise on climate change and coastal areas, to ascertain if they would like to be involved.Our team will do the whole coordination work. Since this is so and we need to pay for the staff time needed to produce a quality bid, we expect each approved partner to contribute towards the preparation costs, due when the proposal for the first stage is submitted. The details can be discussed on an individual basis.

Expressions of interest to join the bid, initially consisting of:

  • a 200 words description of the organisation  and of its expertise on climate change in coastal areas and coastal zone management
  • a list with five examples of project and publications on climate change in coastal areas and coastal zone management

should be sent to: info@iccip.net by 2nd November 2019. We will enter into discussions with those organisations whose profile and expertise better fit with the Call, and our project. Upon selection, we will share the project details with the selected partners.

Please note that Horizon 2020 calls are highly specialised, and we are unfortunately unable to consider any organisation which does not meet the criteria above.
