Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici

Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change ‒ CMCC

Lecce, Italy

CMCC (Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici - Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change) was established by the Italian Government, and conducts research on climate science and policy to improve the understanding of the nature and the mechanisms of climate variability, its causes and impacts, with a special emphasis on the Mediterranean Area and its interactions with the global climate. CMCC is operated by a Research Consortium consisting of several Italian public and private research Institutions. Its headquarters are based in Lecce and its local units in Bologna, Venice, Capua, Sassari and Milan. CMCC produces numerical simulations of global and regional models of climate change, as well as an economic analysis of its impacts on terrestrial and marine ecosystems and on economic activities. Climate policies are also evaluated, jointly with their implications on energy investments, research and development, and the diffusion of climate-friendly technologies. Land use changes, deforestation, and afforestation are integrated in the analysis of global impacts of climate change as well as the future paths of economic development in different world regions. Its two last-generation supercomputers make it one of the most important research structures in Europe. The launch of a series of multidisciplinary partnerships and the recent confirmation of the financial support from the Italian Government for the next three years have made it possible to combine different aspects coming from various fields of knowledge, such as chemistry, biology, physics and social sciences, into a core structure combining competences with high-grade equipment.
