In addition to being a leading expert in several research areas, FMI is also committed to helping other countries, especially the developing world, in the development of their meteorological services. UNIS is well equipped with infrastructure for both marine and terrestrial field, laboratory and experimental research. Nordic Agency for Development and Ecology, Denmark. NORDECO develops tools and methods, carries out research, connects persons and institutions, builds capacity, and supports interventions on the ground.
Its goal is to support local, innovative conservation and development initiatives in remote communities. NORDECO has spearheaded the development of bottom-up approaches to natural resource monitoring and management, where local people or local government staff are directly involved in data collection and interpretation, and where monitoring is linked to the decisions of local people, using methods that are simple, cheap and require few resources.
NORDECO coordinates the international Monitoring Matters Network, which involves researchers and practitioners from universities, community-based and non-governmental organizations, and government agencies. Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, Sweden. SMHI is responsible for national meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic monitoring, forecasting and production of climate change projections. The main fields of research include weather and climate modelling, data assimilation, hydrology, oceanography and air quality. Climate research is a cross departmental activity, with all six research sections contributing to the development of climate projections, impact assessments and communication with stakeholders, regional authorities and major utilities.
Europe's refugee policy is test of its true 'way of life'
The University of Sheffield, United Kingdom. The University of Sheffield established over a hundred years ago, was founded on the aspirations and with financial support of the people of Sheffield. The university encourages innovative collaboration across subject areas and with individuals, businesses and organisations to solve the more pressing problems we face, both close to home and around the world.
National University of Ireland, Ireland. The university aims to work across traditional boundaries to focus on the major societal challenges of the 21st century.
IFREMER is the key French institute that undertakes research and expert assessments to advance knowledge on the oceans and their resources, monitor the marine environment and foster the sustainable development of maritime activities. IFREMER has a strong capacity in both in-situ and remotely sensed observations and maintains links to various user communities. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur Forderung der Wissenschaften e.

Its research mission is the investigation of the global biogeochemical cycles and their interaction with the climate system. The institute combines strong observational and process-based studies soil carbon, plant community and growth, vegetation-atmosphere fluxes with global scale modelling e. Moreover, the department of Biogeochemical Systems maintains regular long-term in-situ measurements of various atmospheric constituents in a number of places around the world. EuroGOOS works in the collective interest of its members, to improve the quality and cost effectiveness in the production of operational oceanography services at national, regional and global levels.
The establishment of regional systems ROOS and strong cooperation within these enable the involvement of many more regional partners and countries in the promotion and development of operational oceanography. Its aim is to facilitate information exchange and generate value-added products in the field of marine sciences and technologies between a wide range of governmental and non-governmental bodies. The Technical University of Madrid has, among its objectives, the creation, development, transmission and criticism of science, technology, and culture.
It is focused on engineering studies, and is structured into 18 schools and faculties, plus 17 research centres. The research team participating here is the Glaciology Section, part of the Group of Numerical Simulation in Science and Engineering made up of 10 academic and research staff plus 10 other researchers or graduate students. The Glaciology Section focuses its research on numerical modelling of glacier dynamics, ground-penetrating radar applications to glaciology, and glacier mass balance.
The Institute of Environmental Physics, within the University of Bremen, works on exploring the Earth system with physical methods. Foci are the atmospheric, oceanic and cryospheric sciences and remote sensing methods, among other with satellites, and ground based, airborne and shipborne sensors. Many projects use external platforms or carrier systems, among them the research vessel Polarstern of the Alfred-Wegener-Institute in Bremerhaven, research aircrafts, stratospheric balloons and ground based stations all around the world, from the tropics to the poles as well as data from a range of satellite sensors.
Operational products include daily maps of sea ice concentration and thickness. It brings together the expertise of nine university institutes and facilities and is part of the KlimaCampus Hamburg.
