On 13 June 2013, coordinator Dr. Hans Sanderson overviewed and provided early results of the BASE project at a Technical Workshop on Adaptation research projects, at the offices of DG Environment in Brussels. This workshop was a follow-up to similar events organized by DG RTD in 2010 and 2011. It was small-scale in nature (about 25-30 persons) and targeted at the Policy DGs. The purpose was to further strengthen the dialogue that was initiated between FP7 projects and the Policy DGs, and included presentations from FP7 projects nearing completion, as well as those recently launched. Dr. Sanderson's presentation overviewed the aims, structure and methods of BASE.
