About Us

A team of more than 50 scientists from Greece, Italy and India. We aim at reducing the impact of climate change on agriculture. We are committed to build capacities in Indian scientists that will tackle the climate change issues in India having a global perspective.

About our Journey

Our journey started from the pages of the “State of the World 2018” (U.N.). The scientists and Institutions of AdaptNET gathered together around the idea reducing the impact of climate change. We understand that higher education is a critical tool to reach our goals. We thus built on a network of European and Indian scientists, previously part of EU funded projects, and we developed into innovative areas of e-learning and higher education building capacities. The result of our creative planning is AdaptNET: a three-years project, started in 2019 and financed by the ERASMUS + – CAPACITY BUILDING program. It involves more than 50 scientists in 8 Institutions Four European Institutions are collaborating with 4 Indian partners in training young Indian scientists, that will become high-education teachers, disseminated in strategic Indian institutions. AdaptNET results will resound for long time and the trained scientists, along with the new curricula, will contribute to European and Indian governments efforts to mitigate climate change effects.
About us

Mission & VIsion

We recognize the dramatic truth of the words of the United Nations representatives: “climate variability and extremes are among the key drivers behind the recent uptick in global hunger and one of the leading causes of severe food crises”.  We agree that is time to act, to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity of food systems, people’s livelihoods, and nutrition in response to climate variability and extremes. We also understand that India is particularly exposed to climate change challenges. The country’s relentless growth rate is adding pressure to Indian government and research Institutions to come up with applicable solutions.
We are committed to fostering a generation of scientists that can understand and counteract the negative effects of climate change on agriculture, and we do understand that this has to start from the countries where the effects are more intense. Our goal is to increase the awareness about climate change, and to set up the scientific tools to reduce its effects.
