This was the EMS DigitalMETDialogue

The first EMS online event was organised in collaboration with PRIMET and ECOMET as three webinars on highly relevant topics of the met. and climate community:

  • Open Science, Open Data, with 165 attendees
  • COVID-19 and Meteorology, with 135 attendees
  • Enabling the Weather Enterprise in Europe for the 21st century, with 120 attendees

For all three events the feedback was quite positive. In particular, the three topics chosen were appreciated and regarded as being highly relevant by those who participated. The downside of the events was that we were unable to arrange for a more diverse group of speakers despite our efforts. To represent the diversity of the community is a constant objective that we try to facilitate.
