European Initiatives

FP7 & H2020 Projects

  • H2020 project IMMERSE (Improving Models for Marine EnviRonment SErvices) is funded from 2018-12-01 to 2022-11-30 (Inria contact: Florian Lemarié, coordinator: J. Le Sommer, CNRS). The overarching goal of the project is to ensure that the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) will have continuing access to world-class marine modelling tools for its next generation systems while leveraging advances in space and information technologies, therefore allowing it to address the ever-increasing and evolving demands for marine monitoring and prediction in the 2020s and beyond.

Collaborations with Major European Organizations

  • Partner: European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecast. Reading (UK)

  • World leading Numerical Weather Center, that include an ocean analysis section in order to provide ocean initial condition for the coupled ocean atmosphere forecast. They play a significant role in the NEMOVAR project in which we are also partner.

  • Partner: Met Office (U.K) National British Numerical Weather and Oceanographic service. Exceter (UK).

  • We do have a strong collaboration with their ocean initialization team through both our NEMO, NEMO-ASSIM and NEMOVAR activities. They also are our partner in the NEMOVAR consortium.
