4th CAFE WORKSHOP
In-person at ECMWF, Reading, UK | 29-31 March 2022
This is the fourth workshop of the Climate Advanced Forecasting of sub-seasonal Extremes (CAFE) project.
This workshop will include keynote presentations on a variety of aspects related to sub-seasonal forecasting and its applications. There will also be a focus on soft skills with activities to develop these.
This workshop is part of the ongoing activities of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network (ITN).
There is a free admission policy to the scientific sessions within the limits of available places. Please complete the registration form if you are interested in attending one or several sessions.
The workshop will be held in person in Reading, UK. ECMWF has put in place a number of COVID Health and Safetly measures to reduce the risk of transmission in the workplace to the lowest practicable level making ECMWF a safe place to work.
