This section contains the public deliverables (PU) produced by CLIM-RUN consortium and already approved by the EU revisers. Deliverables meant for other programme participants (PP), that do not have sensible data, already approved by the EU revisers are also included in this section.
Energy models are simplified representations of real energy systems. Models are convenient tools in situations where performing tests or experiments in real world are impractical or impossible.

he Mediterranean region is a climate hot spot with an enormous renewable energy resource potential. The renewable energy case study team of the CLIM-RUN project applied a bottom-up research approach (i.e. directly including stakeholders from four case study regions into the research process) to explore if and how climate data is currently used in the region and to appropriately address wants and needs of renewable energy stakeholders in the light of their climate adaptation actions.

D8.1: Workshop report: context and objectives, comparison of data supply and demand, simulation results, feedback and discussion. Integrated case study: Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, Northern Adriatic Sea, Italy
Main objectives of this Work Package is “to analyse the need of climate information and the effectiveness of climate services for the integrated assessment of climate change impacts on coastal zones at the regional to local scale” (from the Description of Works). To achieve this objective end-users of climate information and risk assessments, named stakeholders in this research, will be consulted. Specifically, stakeholders considered here are representative of those public institutions which have a mandate for Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) (see Deliverable 1.1). The geographical area taken into account is the coastline of the two Italian regions of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia (North Adriatic Sea).

D8.2: Workshop report: context and objectives, confrontation of data supply and demand, simulation results, feedback and discussion.
The overall objective of the Integrated Case Study (WP8) is to analyze the need of climate information and the effectiveness of climate services for the integrated assessment of climate change impacts in coastal zones at the regional to local scale. Two relevant case studies were developed on the western and eastern coast of the North Adriatic Sea: the Italian case study, aimed at the development of climate and risk services for the integrated evaluation of several climate change impacts (e.g. heavy rainfall events, pluvial floods, sea-level rise) in the coastal zone of Veneto and Friuli‐Venezia Giulia Regions; the Croatian case study, which includes the whole country and is mainly focused on energy and tourism sectors.

he D8.3 deliverable presented here is based upon the definition of the WP8 deliverables in the Clim‐Run “Description of Work”: It covers stakeholders’ needs and expectations, in view of climate, climate variability and projected climate change, for the integrated case study of the Italian northern Adriatic coastal zone and for the case studies of the Croatian energy and tourism sectors. Various methods of the stakeholders’ involvement, their responses and the problems encountered are described and discussed. The end products are summarised in the form of tables listing various climatic and climate‐related variables, and the time and spatial scales required.

According to the CLIM-RUN “Description of Work” the Deliverable D8.4 (Cross- cutting conclusions) describes how the CLIM-RUN protocol was applied to the North Adriatic case study, highlighting some examples of good practices and key recommendations. Following the common structure and scope proposed by WP1 and WP4 for the cross-cutting reports, D8.4 addresses several topics of the CLIM-RUN protocol, describing the direct experience of the integrated case study in the overall process of climate products development (e.g. from stakeholder analysis and involvement to the identification of priority needs and the assessment/refinement of products). Finally, some general conclusions about the products developed and some future recommendations for the development of climate services at the Mediterranean scale are also provided.

The first CLIMRUN summer school has been postponed to Octobre. This draft does not take into account results from the school which will be inserted by the end of October. This workshop will focus on the development of, and training for, a new research expertise that would lie at the interface between climate science and stakeholder application within the Climate Services framework.

Within CLIM-RUN, on the occasion of the Executive Committee and the Governing Board meetings, the following criteria and tools have been identified to disseminate the scientific products created in the project.

This workshop was focused on the question: can a stakeholder learn how to use climate services and can a climate scientist learn how to produce suitable research products for climate services? Traditionally there has always been a gap between the usual products that the scientific climate community produces and what is suitable for using by stakeholders. This problem is beginning to be addressed by the scientific community at several levels. The EU-funded project CLIM-RUN, for example, has been shaped to initiate a possible climate service network for the Mediterranean area starting from a bottom-up approach which directly involves stakeholders from the beginning.

The main goal of WP9 is the dissemination of the main outcomes of CLIMRUN project. In particular one of the goals of Task 9.3 is the dissemination of scientific results of the project in international meeting such as European Geosciences Union (EGU) and European Meteorological Society (EMS) annual general assemblies where meetings with stakeholders should be also expected. To fulfil this goal, since 2012 a scientific session about climate services has been proposed and co- organised at EGU General Assembly in collaboration with ECLISE project. In this context, a stakeholders meeting has been also organised in 2012 in collaboration with WMO to present to a wider audience the Global Framework of Climate Services (GFCS). At EMS, a session on climate services was pre-existing and several contributions from CLIMRUN have been there submitted to further disseminate the CLIMRUN activities.
