BC3 Strategic Vision and Mission


To steer climate change science towards the co-production of new knowledge and the co-design of policy solutions together with other stakeholders through a solid and transdisciplinary approach, with the ultimate goal to achieve sustainable development.


BC3 mission is to strategically foster co-production of knowledge relevant to decision making by integrating environmental, socioeconomic, and ethical dimensions of climate change.

This vision and mission requires a seamless path from collecting evidence and expert judgements, through research that investigates and compares assumptions and results of different models, to the implementation and testing of integrated solutions. With emphasis on the multiple facets of the climate change problem, paired with its leadership position in state-of-the-art integrative modeling methodologies, BC3 has the potential to address and consolidate its position as a world leader in supporting the significant parts of the lifecycle of transdisciplinary climate change research. In the coming four years (2018-2021), BC3 will further develop this strategic mission, emphasizing the bridging of scales and scientific languages to support policy- and decision-making in environmentally sustainable, economically efficient and socially equitable ways. In order to do so, the centre will continue to engage with highly recognized scientific teams and research institutions at global, national and regional levels with an increased emphasis on effectively conveying policy messages to public and private decision makers.
