The XI Eumetcal Workshop is an appointment trainers and educators in meteorology cannot miss. This year it will be held in Langen, Germany 10-13 October 2016 and kindly hosted by the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD). The title of the workshop is: Developing communication capabilities for meteorological and climate services.

As it can be envisaged from the title, this year we will be focusing on a rather unexplored topic within the meteorological community: how communication capabilities of weather and climate services are changing and how to make sure the training we provide meets the change requirements.

This topic founded motivation in the fact that National weather and climate services across Europe are moving towards providing impact-based weather and climate services. This requires a change in emphasis in the way services are implemented and in customer – meteorological service communication. In addition, the operational competencies adopted at the last WMO Congress all address communication. Thus there is an emerging training need that must be addressed by the training community, to assist most NHMSs fill the gap and successfully meet the competency requirements.
