Wisse takes on EU project

Together with its Worldcom partners, Wisse Kommunikatie has been working for several months on an interesting, scientific project of the European Union, aimed at climate change: Copernicus.

Copernicus is the name of the European Commission's Earth Observation Programme, which consists of Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) and Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). Both initiatives are managed by the European Centre for Medium-Term Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), an intergovernmental, independent organisation that produces and supplies weather forecasts to its 34 members and partner countries.

C3S identifies key climate change indicators, which enable governments to forecast and act in the interests of sectors such as water management, energy, agriculture and forestry, health care, tourism, infrastructure, insurance and transport.
