New FP7 project strengthens cooperation between the EU and India on climate change research
EU-India S&T cooperation in the field of climate change and glaciology was further strengthened when a new project was launched this month at an open science seminar in New Delhi. The HighNoon project, funded from the 7th European Framework Programme for Research (FP7) will assess the impact of Himalayan glacier retreat, explore possible changes of the Indian summer monsoon on water resources in Northern India and recommend appropriate and efficient response strategies for adapting to hydrological extreme events such as floods and droughts. The project will last for 3 years and will receive over €3 million funding from FP7. Both European and Indian research institutes are involved in the project.
