Partners met in Hamburg for the General Assembly on 4-6 June to mark the first year of the VALORADA project. Time to reflect on the past achievements and outline a roadmap for the milestones planned in the coming years.

The 3-days gathering allowed participants to exchange and nurture insightful and in-depth conversations. It was the opportunity to showcase the progress achieved in collecting useful climate and non-climate data and make them “interoperable” in terms of metadata. These will be further applied in the 5 pilot regions: Gabrovo and Burgas (Bulgaria), Prerov and Mlada Boleslav (Czech Republic), Occitanie (France), Central region of Greece, and Molise region (Italy).

The discussion around VALORADA’s legacy has been present across the sessions. Other key issues addressed the valorisation of data in the climate impact chain, how to ensure scale up and replicability, how to engage potential future regions and local authorities to enable a wide outreach, and the added value of VALORADA in regions’ climate adaptations journey.

A warm thank you to our coordinator Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS) for hosting us!

The next General Assembly will take place online in December 2024. Make sure to stay tuned to learn more about our next developments, many to come in the coming months!
