A set of five case studies bring scientists together with stakeholders and often small and medium enterprises to co-develop products that “translate” the model outputs and improved modelling skill developed in WPs 1-4 into societal- and sector-relevant products i.e. climate services and targeted information services.

The case studies address the following sectors:

  1. Opens internal link in current windowWinter tourism centers in Northern Finland 
  2. Opens internal link in current windowTemperature-related human mortality in European regions
  3. Opens internal link in current windowExtreme weather risks to maritime activities 
  4. Opens internal link in current windowClimate services for marine fisheries
  5. Opens internal link in current windowYamal 2040: Scenarios for the Russian Arctic 

Each case study follows a broadly similar pattern, involving:

  • identification of end-user/stakeholder requirements
  • development of products (climate and information services)
  • evaluation and valuation of products and information and the increased skill delivered by Blue-Action
  • dissemination of results
