Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS)

The Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS) was initiated by the German Federal Government in 2009 as a fundamental part of the German hightech-strategy for climate protection. Since June 2014, GERICS has been a scientific organizational entity of Helmholtz-Zentrum hereon GmbH. The director of GERICS is meteorologist and climate scientist Prof. Dr. Daniela Jacob.

 

Mission

GERICS offers in a scientifically sound manner products, advisory services and decision-relevant information in order to support government, administration and business in their efforts to adapt to climate change.

Main sectors

Currently, the consultancy is focused mainly on the following sectors: water, energy and ecosystems and cities.

Prototypical product development

In a joint approach, GERICS develops prototype climate service products in close cooperation with partners and users. Currently, two categories of products and services are developed: different types of fact sheets, and consultancy toolkits, based on a modular design. The product prototypes are tested in practice, before potentially being offered to third parties to operationalise.

Networking

GERICS is incorporated worldwide in several activities in the area of climate services and is active in coordinating and contributing to many international, European and national research networks and initiatives.
