· The Conference is organized by the Science Shop Vechta/Cloppenburg of the University of Vechta within the framework of the H2020 TeRRIFICA project, whereby eight European institutions work together to foster competence for climate change adaptation and mitigation in different European regions with a specific focus on Responsible Research and Innovation.
“Climate change is the defining challenge of our time. Mitigating its impacts and adapting to changes already taking place or impossible to avoid will require fundamental changes to societies and behaviours all over the world – as well as scientific breakthroughs, both technological and social” (Climate Change Adaptation – Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, European Commission). It is in this context the TeRRIFICA project emerges and organizes its 2nd TeRRIFICA Online Conference. What is mandatory for prospect co-creation processes in climate adaptation and mitigation projects? This and other questions will be discussed during the event.
