About the IMPACT2C project

Understanding a climate change of 2°C, and the corresponding impacts, risks and adaptation in Europe, as well as key vulnerable hot spot regions is the mission of the EU FP7 project IMPACT2C.

IMPACT2C was a multi-disciplinary international project, running from 2011 to 2015, which was funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme under the grant agreement No. 282746.

IMPACT2C has been initiated by the European Commission in order to provide information and evidence on the impacts of +2°C global warming for Europe and key vulnerable regions of the world. Researchers from 29 different institutions and 16 different countries collaborated and worked together within this project. For more information on the IMPACT2C project and the involved research institutions, please see the archived project webpage https://impact2c.hzg.de/.

Within IMPACT2C, a wide range of different models and methods has been applied. To get an overview see here for the climate models and here for the impact assessment models and methods.
