Activities and results of ClimMani

The Action provides a range of activities and results

ClimManiWorking groups

The Action will be based on 4 Working Groups:

  • WG1 - Frameworks and best practice guidance for future climate change manipulation experiments
  • WG2 - Climatic gradients as proxies for climatic experiments
  • WG3 - Data syntheses, data sharing and meta data
  • WG4 - Integrated ecosystem experimentation and modelling.

Summer schools

Summer schools will be held on experiments, gradients and modelling. The summer schools will be targeted specifically at ESR and will combine theoretical and "hands on" experiences.

International conferences

International conferences will be organised in collaboration with other international networks. One will include societal stakeholders such as research managers and policy makers.


We will hold workshops on WG specific topics for a smaller audience, eventually in relation to annual conferences (> 6 workshops)

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Each WG will provide announcements of STSMs. Priority will be on STSMs related to the development of the Action area and with publication potential (>20 STSM). Read more about STSM

See list of STSMs


ClimMani produce a range of results based on the activities, such as publications, guidelines and a meta database.


See list of publications

Guidelines and Conceptual frameworks

Guidelines for experimentalists on best practice in experimental manipulations, use of gradients and data-model interactions (3 perspectives papers) and Conceptual frameworks for extreme events experiments and threshold testing and for data sharing facilities (2 perspectives papers).

META Database

A META database will provide searchable information of experiments, gradients and models related to climate change (information of site, experimental characteristic, methodologies, response measurements, model-data integration, data availability, publications, contacts etc.)
