Eumetcal is The EUMETNET Education and Training Collaborative Network of the National Meteorological Services within Europe.
Goal: The goal of this collaboration is to increase the education and training opportunities for its members. By helping the members share and re-use their training offerings double work is avoided. The management of the Eumetcal 2 Programme therefore creates a central place where members can ask questions and find answers to all their meteorological education and training related needs, so that Eumetcal members can accomplish the training goals of their own organisation.
Eumetcal relies on its members. A productive collaboration only brings valuable results if all members actively participate and share their knowledge and resources with the community. The Eumetcal 2 Programme Management Group will support the community by:
1) The facilitation of collaborations
Some activities of the Center include:
3) Providing the community with useful tools and with accompanied support, as they implement their training activities (Webex, turning point and other tools).
4) Fostering and supporting an active community of practice which shares knowledge across organisations to deliver high-quality and cost-effective training.
With all the activities mentioned above The Eumetcal 2 programme Management Group aims to create a central place where:
Simply put, we would like to create a place where you can ask questions and find answers to all meteorological education and training related needs, so that you can accomplish the training goals of your organisation.
