EMS Annual Meetings

The Annual Meetings of the EMS aim at fostering exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas in the meteorological, climatological and related communities, focusing particularly on strategic issues relevant to the future of meteorology in Europe.

Until 2016, the EMS Annual Meetings were organised alternately with the European Conference on Applied Climatology (ECAC) and the European Conference on Applications of Meteorology (ECAM).
In light of the growing role within and engagement with society, as well as the increasingly intertwined nature of weather and climate services, a new concept for the programme of the annual conference was developed in collaboration with all stakeholders. This new concept has since been successfully implemented.

The alternating focus on weather and climate from year to year will be continued and highlighted through the conference theme. The theme for the forthcoming 2024 EMS Annual Meeting in Barcelona, Spain, in September 2024 will be The role of weather and climate research in the achievement of a climate-neutral Europe.
