The Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center (ACCC)

The Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center (ACCC) is a Finnish flagship funded by Academy of Finland, at the moment for the years 2020-2024 and foreseen funding for 2025-2028. ACCC is based on a partnership of Institute of Atmospheric and Earth System Research INAR at the University of Helsinki, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Tampere University and University of Eastern Finland. Our vision is “towards safe climate and clean air”. ACCC partners bridge research on atmospheric chemistry and physics, climate, ecology, soil science, social science, economics and law with high societal impact on climate and air quality related policies, services, innovations, new businesses and wide-ranging capacity building on climate competences. Our approach is based on deep scientific understanding of the land-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks and provides practical solutions on climate neutrality and beyond. Our aim is to lead global inter-disciplinary climate and atmospheric sciences, continuously developing our research infrastructures in Finland, as part of European and global scientific networks including building new capabilities on comprehensive data gathering with open data policy. We cover basic science, applications and innovations. We welcome contributions from all stakeholders and collaborators. The foreseen outcomes are disseminated on national, EU and international scales.
