Partners from France (ACTeon and BRGM), Greece (University of Athens) and Portugal (ISCTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, University of Aveiro-CESAM) will work in three distinct research sites on how knowledge affects perceptions on climate change and how perceptions affect decision-making at all levels (economic, social, environmental policies) when dealing with climate change.
