7 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET does ….. Member NMHS:s contribute in the EUMETNET budget (11 MUSD) in proportion to their GNP Some of the 20 Programmes are mandatory and others are optional By cost sharing the benefits are maximised at lower cost to the individual Members The individual Programmes have been designed by individual Members or groups of Members Each Programme is managed by a Responsible Member on behalf of all Members during a defined period (currently 5 years)

8 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET provides … the opportunity for Members to finance extra AMDAR data for national NWP requirements the opportunity for other WMO Member institutes to finance targeted AMDAR data for national NWP requirements
