Contract title


Contract number





The objective of the Agreement is to deliver a pre-operational capability for a flexible, configurable, European monitoring and prediction framework providing decision-making support at continental, country, coastline, catchment and city scales in response to meteorological, hydrological and air quality extremes.

This capability is to combine weather, hydrology, air quality observation and simulation competences at a qualitatively new level of on-demand information discovery, also providing uncertainty quantification. The work will demonstrate the co-design with selected use cases showing societal adaptation and mitigation options for dealing with the impacts of extreme events.

The work will connect with ECMWF’s technological developments on the digital twin engine as required, to interface with the DestinE platform components, such as the data lake and the core service platform.
