The Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century (4C) project holds kick-off meeting in June 2019.
The 4C project, funded under the EU Horizon 2020-Research and Innovation program, sets to address the uncertainties in our understanding of the carbon-climate interactions and feedback. 4C will address the crucial knowledge gap in the climate sensitivity to CO2 emissions through innovative integration of models and observations. It will provide new constraints on modelled carbon-climate interactions and climate projections, and support the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments and policy objectives.
4C brings together 12 academic partners from seven European countries, with the strongest expertise on global carbon cycle and climate system, both from the observational and modelling sides. The project will run for 4 years, and the kick-off meeting was held on 11-13 June 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
