MeteoIQ joins the EMS as 31st Associate Member
The EMS Council at its recent session has welcome MeteoIQ GmbH, Germany, as an Associate Member.
Dennis Schulze, Managing Director of MeteoIQ is excited about the organization becoming Associate Member of EMS: “The global weather enterprise can only flourish when all stakeholders – private, public and academic – have an open dialogue. The European Meteorological Society offers an excellent platform for this and we as MeteoIQ are very happy to be part of that in the future. With our verification services we want to provide the community and the users more transparency in terms of forecast accuracy of the different services.”
MeteoIQ has three main areas of activity:
- Providing risk management and weather related technology to the insurance industry. This includes support during the claims management process as well as early information on severe weather events.
- Providing verification services. In order to create transparency on forecast accuracy of different providers, these services are offered to both users of weather forecasts who can select the best-fitting supplier as well as to weather service providers who can assess and improve their forecasting systems.
- Offering consultancy services. The founders of MeteoIQ have been active in the meteorological industry for decades and provide their expertise to improve forecast systems, create new technology solutions and make best use of meteorological solutions for business and consumer applications.
Bert Holtslag, EMS President, is delighted: “As President of EMS I very much welcome MeteoIQ as a new Associate Member of EMS. I hope that this sets the stage for other companies in the private sector to join and work with EMS towards a forward-looking, responsive and cooperative European meteorological community that includes professionals from all sectors.”
