Abstract: Climate change impacts pose increasing challenges to society as was evident in the summer 2021, which was characterized by extreme drought, flooding, heat waves and wildfires - all within Europe. Thus, the need to adapt to climate impacts as well as to mitigate climate change is gaining weight. To successfully implement adaptation and mitigation measures, three "pillars" are required:

1) (scientific) knowledge,

2) awareness,

3) tools and guidance.

Therefore, we combine participatory processes with behavior, sector specific (e.g. transport) and climate research. The focus of the climate research is on high resolution climate projection, in combination with urban scale models and down to microclimate models, to generate reliable future projections applicable to various user-related topics. They form the base for on the one hand defining necessary adaptation measures (e.g. nature-based solutions) and on the other hand evaluate the impact of the proposed adaptation as well as mitigation measures on the local conditions (e.g. temperature).
