GERICS is a think tank for innovations in the field of climate services. A strong link to academia, an excellent access to scientific know-how and the interdisciplinary development of knowledge are prerequisite for the creation of a robust basis for a sustainable climate service. Therefore GERICS is engaged in various research topics in the fields of regional climate modelling, impact modelling and economic modelling, regional system modelling, transdisciplinary cooperation within research, stakeholder dialogues and their evaluation. With our projects and the participation in international research projects we aim at strengthening and expanding our leading role in the fields of regional/local climate modelling and climate services.
