  • How can you influence the project direction and contribute to its outputs?

  • How can your organisation remain involved and be the first to hear about the findings of this project?

About the project:

The central objective of SECLI-FIRM is to demonstrate how the use of improved climate forecasts, out to several months ahead, can add practical and economic value to decision-making processes and outcomes, primarily in the energy sector, but also in the water sector.

The project runs from February 2018 until July 2021 and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 776868. For more information, please visit www.Secli-Firm.eu or follow @SECLI_Firm on Twitter.
