Data, Platforms and Digital Applications


The Mission of the Unit is to aggregate, connect and visualize data relative to objectives of Climate Hub on:

  • Inputs – funding research (public/private)
  • Outputs – who is producing what
  • Outcomes – scientific knowledge/trends, data, technology (tools & services), policies
  • Effects – interdisciplinarity, networks
  • Impacts – links to SDGs, usage by non-academia


The Unit’s goal is to Better understand the STI landscape for climate by:

  • Monitor relevant research activities related at global scale
  • Assess their impact on R&I ecosystem, economy and society
  • Build a directory of who’s who (people, organisations) relating with outcomes
  • Monitor and enhance policies practices & uptake



  • Identify efforts to build synergies
  • See what works and what not​
  • Reveal hidden potential​
  • Promote good practices


Data gathering, processing, and provision, through OpenAIRE

TReNDS: Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics

An initiative of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, the Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics (TReNDS), mobilizes technical and policy-oriented solutions to advance the data revolution for sustainable development. 


Its vision is to transform society through validated scientific knowledge and allow citizens, educators, funders, civil servants and industry to find ways to make science useful for themselves, their working environments and society while its mission is to shift scholarly communication towards openness and transparency and facilitate innovative ways to communicate and monitor research.
