The MARCO project is excited to announce its Final Stakeholder meeting, which will take place at Steigenberger Hotel in Berlin on the 28 September 2018.
This promises to be an extremely interactive gathering of representatives and experts from the numerous stakeholder groups that drive the project. The market of climate services currently remains in its infancy: current strategies face knowledge and visibility gaps, while the associated economic benefits to users are either unknown or uncertain. The Horizon 2020 projects MARCO and EU-MACS are particularly meant for analysing the current state of affairs regarding the uptake of climate services, assess the development prospects, and propose remedies so as to promote a significant larger utilization of the development and use potential of climate services.
The MARCO project focuses on the evaluation of current and future market size, as well as on the requirements and benefits of a market observatory on climate services. On the other hand the EU-MACS project focuses on obstacles, drivers, and opportunities affecting the uptake of climate services as well as the development and supply of climate services.
As both projects are coming to an end by December 2018, results, models and early recommendations will be presented and discussed with stakeholders from various sectors in order to further understand the market for climate services and better shape the projects’ legacy.
