The aim of the workshop is to introduce the features of the joint ECMWF and EUMETSAT cloud computing systems, to provide an overview of the existing projects already using these systems and to facilitate a dialogue on the future use of the European Weather Cloud by MS-NMHSs in their official duty capacity.

Access to this particular workshop is by invitation only.

    This workshop is quite informative, I'm glad to participate. This is not out of courtesy, morning sessions really gave a good balance of overall system overview and technical details necessary to start messing around with EWC.
