8 Strategy

9 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET Mission To help its Members to develop and share their individual and joint capabilities through cooperation programmes that enable enhanced networking, interoperability, optimisation and integration within Europe; and also to enable collective representation with European bodies in order that these capabilities can be exploited effectively. From EUMETNET Strategy

10 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET Vision By 2020 EUMETNET will have enabled its Members to provide a cost efficient, world-class, shared infrastructure that is significantly more interoperable and integrated with shared basic services. These improvements will enable Members to better fulfil their official duties, enhance their individual capabilities and provide a basis for Members to deliver, collectively, joint public information services at the level of the EU and the EEA. From EUMETNET Strategy

11 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET Strategic Goals The following are the 3 strategic goals of EUMETNET over the next 10 years: –Improving efficiency of EUMETNET elements of the EMI through EUMETNET programme activity and by moving towards shared services, where appropriate. –Investing collectively through EUMETNET in science, technology and skills for the future. –To be an essential partner for EU/EC and its bodies, whenever the implementation of EU policies require capabilities and services from the meteorological community.

12 Delivery

13 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles EUMETNET programmes Primary means of delivering EUMETNET mission and goals Focus on delivery 2 types: Mandatory and Optional 3 Categories: –Operational –R&D –Coordination and networking

14 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles Observations 1/2 EUCOS (EUMETNET Composite Observing System) Framework for EUMETNET activities in the field of Observing systems E-AMDAR(Aircraft Meteorological Data Relay) Vertical profiles of wind and temperature over airports and en route measurements E-ASAP(Automated Shipboard Aerological Programme) Vertical profiles of wind temperature and humidity from ships

15 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles Observation 2/2 E-SURFMAR (Surface Marine observation programme) Optional element of EUCOS for integration of surface marine observations E-WINPROF (Wind Profilers) Provides vertical profiles on wind measurements E-GVAP (The GNSS water vapour programme) European GPS delays and water vapour measurements for operational meteorology OPERA (Operational Programme for the Exchange of Weather Radar Information) Operational exchange of weather radar information between NMHSs

16 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles Climate ECSN (European Climate Support Network) Supports its 25 members in their climate practices PEP 725 (Phenological Database) COST action prototype database of European phenological records EUMETGRID Develop and maintain sustainable pan-European data infrastructure for accessing and distributing gridded climate information

17 GIE/EIG EUMETNET, Registered Number RPM Bruxelles Forecasting and training C-SRNWP (Coordination - Short Range Numerical Weather Prediction) Ensures coordination between 5 European modelling consortia SRNWP Verification EUMETCal : European Virtual Organisation for Meteorological training
