European weather Extremes: DrIvers, Predictability and Impacts ("EDIPI", 2021-2024)

Type: Marie Skłodowska-Curie International Training Network

EDIPI is a large European network of universities, research institutions and private actors coordinated from Uppsala. The project seeks to advance our understanding of the dynamics, predictability and impacts of temperature, precipitation (including drought) and surface wind extremes over Europe and the Mediterranean. We will leverage a truly interdisciplinary scientific approach embracing climate science, statistical mechanics, dynamical systems theory, risk management, agronomy, epidemiology and more to open unexplored avenues in the study of the above weather extremes. EDIPI also has a strong training component, and will train a cohort of early-stage researchers to become weather extremes experts.
