Third Destination Earth User eXchange: Registration open

25 June 2024

The 3rd Destination Earth User eXchange meeting will take place on 15 and 16 October 2024 at the Darmstadtium Congress Centre in Darmstadt, Germany. The event will bring together key stakeholders from the scientific community, as well as from public and private entities to discuss current and future uses of Destination Earth (DestinE). Registrations to attend onsite are open now.  

Following the first two DestinE User eXchanges, the third event of this series functions as an open forum for stakeholders, partners and future users. During the two-day event, various sessions will demonstrate the progress and potential uses of DestinE and how partners can benefit. The aim is to foster dialogue between stakeholders, users and partners, outline expectations and needs for improvements as well as finding ways to strengthen engagement in DestinE.

Registration for on-site participation is open until 30 September and for virtual participants until 10 October. You can register here. Participation is free-of-charge and open to all interested parties, but on-site capacity is limited – so register early to secure your place. Online attendees can join via a livestream, using interactive tools for Q&A, live polling, and chat. Additionally, training sessions on the DestinE platform will be available and streamed for all participants.

A poster session will be held on the first day of the event for on-site participants. Online attendees will have the chance to watch the posters prior to the event. If you want to submit a poster, you can follow the procedure here.

Destination Earth is a European Union-funded initiative launched in 2022, with the aim to build a digital replica of the Earth system by 2030. The initiative is being jointly implemented under the leadership of the EU Commission’s DG CNECT by three entrusted entities: the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), responsible for the creation of the first two ‘digital twins’ and the ‘Digital Twin Engine’, the European Space Agency (ESA) responsible for building the ‘Core Service Platform’, and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), responsible for the creation of the ‘Data Lake’.  

We acknowledge the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking for awarding this project strategic access to the EuroHPC supercomputers LUMI, hosted by CSC (Finland), and the LUMI consortium, Marenostrum5, hosted by BSC (Spain) Leonardo, hosted by Cineca (Italy) and MeluXina, hosted by LuxProvide (Luxembourg) through a EuroHPC Special Access call.
