Joint Call for International Research Proposals

We are pleased to announce the launch of the AXIS Joint Call on Assessment of Cross(X)-sectoral climate Impacts and pathways for Sustainable transformation.

The ERA-NET AXIS is a network of 11 funding organisations from 10 European countries that has been created to promote cross-boundary, cross-community research with the overall goal to improve coherence, integration and robustness of climate impact research and connect it to societal needs. To this effect, AXIS aims to bring together international expertise in the areas of this call for proposals and work on overcoming boundaries between science communities through inter- or trans-disciplinary research projects.


The objective of this Joint Transnational Call is AXIS is a collective effort to broaden the knowledge base that helps societies guiding societies in their transition to sustainability, in particular through an integrated under-standing of social, political and environmental impacts and risks associated with climate change. It aims to contribute to more accurate estimations and better quantified uncertainties with respect to what climate impacts are to be expected for different plausible socio-economic scenarios and for various carbon emission futures and corresponding warming levels. Ultimately, this research shall increase the potential to use climate impact data in operational climate services (e.g. the Copernicus Climate Change Service, C3S) and support adaptation policies to reduce vulnerabilities and increase resilience in future.


The scope of this AXIS call is structured into three interlinked thematic priorities (themes):

  1. Cross-sectoral and cross-scale climate change impact assessments
  2. Integration of biophysical climate change impacts estimates with economic models
  3. Developing pathways to achieve the long-term objectives of the Paris Agreement, taking into ac-count interactions with SDGs closely linked to SDG 13 (“climate action”)
