Special Issue now in print // Data repository active and public // Protocol for ISI-MIP2 // Funding

Posted by Lila Warszawski on Dec. 19, 2013

As this busy year comes to an end we would like to give you an update on how things are progressing with ISI-MIP, and what we have planned for the new year. 

Special Issue now in print
As most of you already know, the PNAS special feature - comprising 11 papers discussing the ISI-MIP results - was officially published online on Monday, 16 December.  You can find a link to the special issue on the website under www.isimip.org > Publications. We are also collecting media items concerning ISI-MIP on the website under www.isimip.org > Press and Media .

Thank you for your invaluable contributions to bringing this special feature to life in such a short time.  We are very proud of what we have all achieved!

Data repository active and public
With the publication of the special feature, we would like to once again draw your attention to the ISI-MIP data repository, which is live and public. The repository can be found here https://esg.pik-potsdam.de/ and we invite you to publicise this resource widely within your networks.

Protocol for ISI-MIP2
Work is continuing on the multi-sectoral protocol for ISI-MIP2. In collaboration with the sectoral coordinators, the PIK-based coordination team is now working to ensure consistency of the modelling protocol between sectors and scales. We will keep you regularly updated on this process.

An application for funding for the ISI-MIP coordination and cross-sectoral and sector specific workshops has very recently been lodged with one of the German national funding agencies (BMBF).  We look forward to sharing with you the outcome of this proposal in the new year.

We are continuing our enquiries with the Europe-wide Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) with regards to funding opportunities for individual modelling groups within ISI-MIP. Thank you again to those of you who have supported this process so far. We will keep you posted about developments in this area.

We wish you all a safe and relaxing break!
