ECMWF is at the forefront of research for numerical weather prediction including probabilistic forecasting. Our research enables us to remain the world's leading centre for global medium-range weather forecasts.
We research collaboratively with scientists across the world and consider all aspects of prediction systems as well as the many areas that support forecast production. This includes the visualisation of big data sets and the scalability of our computer code, which is required for its efficient running on future supercomputers.
Special Projects are 'experiments or investigations of a scientific or technical nature, undertaken by one or more Member States, likely to be of interest to the general scientific community'.
