[Source: Research & Innovation] ECCA 2017 will be organised by 3 EU-funded projects: IMPRESSIONS, RISES AM and HELIX.ECCA 2017 will build upon the achievements of ECCA 2013 in Hamburg and ECCA 2015 in Copenhagen, which emphasised research-policy-practice links and the emerging adaptation services offered by businesses. The theme of ECCA 2017 is ‘Our Climate Ready Future’. The vision is that this conference will inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment. It will bring together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with leading researchers and policymakers. ECCA 2017 is held in Europe but the focus is global, with presenters from 48 countries on five continents. The programme features three plenary sessions, 85 parallel sessions, a poster drinks reception, a Ceilidh and a film screening. This year, for the first time, there is a special Business and Innovation programme to be run in parallel with the first two days of the conference.
