Scientific Collaboration
in Climate Change

In early 2019, the Summit of the Americas of Advanced Networks was held to develop a common agenda, address pressing issues, and join forces to increase cooperation on science, technology, and innovation.

Considering the vast amount of possible subjects of study, the Summit decided to cooperate, at first, in research linked to one of the UN proposals for 2030, considered a priority for the survival of humanity: climate change, a theme that is mobilizing the planet.

Community Goals

1. Identify synergies and opportunities for collaboration among researchers in the region working in areas related to:

  • Environmental sciences
  • Earth and planetary sciences
  • Agricultural and biometric sciences
  • Social Sciences
  • Engineering
  • Renewable energy

2. Identify the infrastructure requirements of the researchers to allow them to develop their collaborative research with international peers.
3. Articulate, together with national networks, the construction of scenarios for scientific collaboration in climate change.


After the formation of the community, with the support of the RedCLARA member National Networks, researchers with active work in the above mentioned areas were invited to join this initiative. Thus, the community is composed of:

Colombian Researchers' Conversatory - July 18, 2019:

At the annual meeting of the Colombian national network, RENATA, a face-to-face meeting was held to identify researchers' requirements on services and resources to effectively collaborate with them. The meeting counted on the participation of eight researchers from different institutions of Colombia, such as IDEAM, Universidad del Rosario, Universidad de los Andes, Universidad Nacional, among others.

"Opportunities for Collaboration in Climate Change among researchers from the Americas, analysis of experiences and benefits" Webinar - August 8, 2019:

Eighteen researchers from over nine countries in Latin America and the United States participated in this webinar.

Working Table: Resources and Services for Scientific Collaboration - 1-3 September 2019:

The activity was conducted during the TICAL2019 Conference with 10 researchers who previously participated in the Conversatory and Webinar, held in July and August, respectively.

  • Services and resources offered by global research and education networks to researchers, scientists and academics were socialized.
  • Needs and requirements considered most relevant by community members reviewed;
  • The relevant topics to the beginning of the following work plan were defined.
