The European Climate Research Alliance (ECRA) is an association of 23 European research institutions (institutes and universities) in the field of climate research. 

There are three levels of membership: Partners, Participants, and Associates.

ECRA is open to new members. Find out more here »

Below is a list of all ECRA members along with a desciption of their key expertise in climate research and their involvement in ECRA's four Collaborative Programmes (CPs).
