On behalf of the European Commission, the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) is developing a Climate Data Store which will make climate information freely available to users from 2018. The current C3S_422_Lot1_SMHI contract (GLORIOUS - GLObal useRs In the cOpernicUs climate change Service) will demonstrate the users uptake of relevant and high-impact climate information from the Climate Data Store world-wide, addressing sectors such as health, safety, water-security, transport, biodiversity, tourism, agriculture and food production.
The GLORIOUS team consists of three partners including GERICS being experts in climate services and eight champion users from multi-national companies and global organizations and 12 regional or local users from across the globe. The project is coordinated by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and will demonstrate real-world showcases for climate-change adaptation on each continent by providing and producing climate impact indicators and information with guidance in best practices.
GERICS is responsible for the quality assurance of the production of new climate impact indicators and the tailoring, including documentation and guidance. The achievements of GLORIOUS service will be integrated into the general Climate Data Store by the project end.
