An ice-breaking network event, presentations by climate services that mean business, policy pitches for a resilient Europe, data matchmaking with experts who can offer key insights …

Keeping our eyes peeled…
Mediating and anticipating the effects of a changing climate is impossible without data that allow us to properly chart and predict climate impacts. That is why this conference wants to showcase novel climate data sets and tools.
our feet dry…
The increasingly common floods that Europe faces can have devastating effects. At the same time, Europe is experiencing lengthy droughts. We want to connect those looking for hydrological policy advice and concrete approaches with those offering solutions.
and our heads cool.
Increasingly common heatwaves have wide-ranging effects. How should densely populated areas keep their inhabitants save? How do we make infrastructure heat-proof? And what with regions that depend on summer tourism? We want to provide a platform for leading responses to heat-related threats.
