The Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC) is a non-profit research institution ( CMCC’s mission is to investigate and model our climate system and its interactions with society to provide reliable, rigorous, and timely scientific results, which will in turn stimulate sustainable growth, protect the environment, and develop science driven adaptation and mitigation policies in a changing climate. CMCC collaborates with experienced scientists, economists, and technicians, which work together in order to provide full analyses of climate impacts on various systems such as agriculture, ecosystems, coasts, water resources, health, and economics. CMCC also supports policymakers in setting and assessing costs, mitigation, and adaptation policies.

Main tasks attributed under Work Packages:

According to the described profile, the main tasks of CMCC are concerned with activities of data assimilation and OSE/OSSEs use in WP3 (Task 3.7 and related subtasks), and in a couple of case studies applications of WP4 in the Mediterranean Sea.
