ProClim is a scientific platform recognised across Switzerland that processes and compiles scientific fundamentals relating to climate change for the scientific community itself, the political milieu and society in general. ProClim contributes to a climate-neutral and -resilient Switzerland by networking science, politics and society as a whole.


Synthesis: ProClim produces scientifically based and socially relevant content on climate change.

Interaction: As a platform recognised throughout Switzerland, ProClim strengthens the scientific network, linking science with public administration, politics and society.

Communication: ProClim contributes the latest scientific findings and options for action relating to climate change in a useful form for political and public discussion in Switzerland, thus encouraging evidence-based decision making with regard to new solutions in the area of climate protection and climate adaptation.


The mission is promoted and associated goals implemented in the context of the 2024–2028 Strategy. Information on the activities pursued by ProClim can be found under Activities.
