Dear all
Jacquie had sounded very positive about this back in August, but it sounds like CSERGE are
as stretched as much as people in CRU.
I'm afraid it's looking like we're not going to be able to get anything together on this
unless Rob is able to take a lead. But I think that we would still be lacking the
interdisciplinary research team that AXA are stressing.
Clare
PS Rob - sorry not to have been in touch with you sooner about this, but I didn't know
until Tuesday that you were interested/had been approached.

Hi Clare I dont think weve got the capacity to take this on at this stage. Never mind
there will always be other opportunities.
Best wishes
Jacquie

Dear Jacquie
I'm afraid that I've not had time to do anything about this call since returning from
holiday. The deadline is rapidly approaching - 3 October and after this week, I'm away
at meetings until after the deadline. I also have two ARCC proposals and a DCMS tender
to get sorted out this week.
So, I am not going to be able to take any kind of a lead on this even if we think its
worth trying to get a last minute proposal together. No-one else from CRU has time to
take a leading role, but Colin and Maureen are interested. Colin has been working on the
CRU weather generator which will be an integral part of the UKCIP08 user interface and
Maureen has a broader impacts perspective and is lead author on the climate chapter in
the forthcoming CII report. Simon Busby might also be interested - and has good
experience of working with climate model outputs (although for a rather different
purpose). One task for CRU would be to extend some of the validation work of the
ENSEMBLES RCM runs. I should also be able to read and comment on material and provide
some short draft sections of text (e.g., on ENSEMBLES, PRUDENCE, MICE and STARDEX) - I
will have at least sporadic email access while away I hope.
But I think this is only going to be viable if somebody from CSERGE or the
decision-making group is able to co-ordinate things. And we don't have the capacity for
hydrological modelling in CRU - so again, this would need input from others. Though
there is also the requirement in the call to assess the quality of flood modelling tools
currently licensed by insurers - about which I know nothing. If it would be helpful to
have a quick meeting this week, Iet me know.
Best wishes, Clare

Dear Clare,
Many thanks for this I think it would be an excellent opportunity for a CRU + other
parts of the School response. I know Jan Alexander has already got a European bid
through to second stage on floods. We could certainly put something together with the
environmental decision-making components too. Lets discuss when you get back from
holiday.
Best wishes
Jacquie

Dear Jacquie
CRU is interested in putting in a proposal under this call. As you can see, as well as
the climate science aspects, there is also a need to work on economic issues - so this
could be a good opportunity for putting in a joint proposal with people in CSERGE or
other parts of ENV. There are also additional collaborators on the climate and flooding
aspects that we could involve both in the UK and Germany.
I'm away from tomorrow for a couple of weeks, but the CRU people copied in on this email
are also all interested in a potential proposal. Though currently we're not sure which
if any of us has time to lead on this at least immediately.
Best wishes, Clare

Hello Clare,

AXA recently launched a call for projects to academic institutions focused on the
flooding risk and the impacts of climate change. The Climatic Research Unit may have
been approached with the email reproduced below, and I just wanted to make sure you
received the information.

Sincerely Yours,

Mathieu Choux

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Madam/Sir,

The AXA Research Fund has been created in order to encourage research in a number of
disciplines that touch on the risks, challenges and major transformations that affect
our rapidly changing world. The Fund will award 100 million Euros over five years to
finance innovative research.
The AXA Research Fund team is delighted to announce the launch of a new call for
projects on climate change impacts on the risk of flooding in <?xml:namespace prefix =
st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Europe (see attached document) .
All the information needed to apply can be found on our internet site:
[6]http://researchfund.axa.com/en/research-funding/calls-projects/

Please make sure this information is communicated within your institution. The results
of the selection process will be communicated to them as of January 15, 2009 .

Sincerely,

The AXA Research Fund Team
