ECMWF Workshop on improving the socio-economic impact of NWP data

Accessibility, ease of use and data policy impact upon the realised value of NWP forecast data, as shown in recent socio-economic impact studies. The workshop provided a forum to discuss the challenges of disseminating meteorological data into the future and how ECMWF and NMSs can ensure that the economic value of weather information can continue to be realised by the private market.

The workshop discussed the user needs, the requirement to provide access to fast-growing, large data sets and the available solutions. What are the challenges and costs of ingesting this information? What future opportunities and applications do users foresee for ECMWF forecast data?

The workshop was aimed at policy makers and professionals interested in the evolution of the meteorological industries.
