    We are pleased to announce that the COMPASS project under the supervision of dr. Hab. Paweł Terefenko, prof. US from the Institute of Marine and Environmental Sciences of the University of Szczecin received funding under the Horizon Europe program.

    Full project title: COMPound extremes Attribution of climate change: TowardS an operational Service. The project duration is 36 months. The planned start of design works is January 1, 2024. Funding budget: 2,987,645.76 EUR

    The project partners are:

    • Stichting Deltares (Netherlands),
    • Potsdam-Institut fuer Klimafolgenforschung e.V. (Germany),
    • MET Office (UK),
    • Stichting International Red Cross STICHTING (Netherlands);
    • Seven Engineering Consultants OE (Greece).

    The COMPASS project aims to develop a harmonized but flexible methodological framework for studying climate change and the impacts of different types of hazards. COMPASS goes beyond the current framework by filling the existing gap and moving from classic single-cause extreme analyzes to more complex extremes (i.e. sequences and cascading hazardous events), thereby enabling a shift from a hazard-centric analysis to an impact-centric perspective.

    Horizon Europe is the European Union’s framework program for research and innovation for 2021-2027. The main goal of the program is to finance breakthrough scientific research and innovations carried out by international consortiums. A total of EUR 95.5 billion will be allocated to innovative research and innovative solutions.
