Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL’s) Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) at the University of Maryland is collaborating with the CD-LINKS project as an external partner. JGCRI houses an interdisciplinary team dedicated to understanding the problems of global climate change and their potential solutions. Joint Institute staff bring decades of experience and expertise to bear in science, technology, economics, and policy. One of the strengths of the Joint Institute is a network of domestic and international collaborators that encourages the development of global and equitable solutions to the climate change problem. JGCRI has participated as external partner in earlier EU-FP7 projects, such as the LIMITS and AMPERE.
