We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a new contract with the ECMWF Copernicus Services to provide a major part of their outreach activities. Having already intensively worked with the team over in Reading, UK, in the past two years to help them plan and execute their online communication activities, our new wider responsibilities include designing promotional materials, developing animations and videos and expanding their social media presence.

Copernicus is the European Union’s flagship Earth observation programme that provides information on the state of our planet bundled into specific services. The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF)  implements two of those services, the Climate Change Service (C3S) and the Climate Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). ECMWF also provides support to the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS).

The ECMWF Copernicus Services thus play a pivotal role in disseminating information about the climate and atmosphere to scientists, stakeholders, policy makers and the general public alike and we are very proud to be able to help them achieve this. Together with our partner, the Science Office, we will be providing CAMS and C3S with our full range of communication services.

For this contract we will be coordinating with HBI Helga Bailey, who will be in charge of the press activities, and Adria Congrex/oiko who will take care of the ECMWF Copernicus presence at events. Together we will make sure that the message about climate and atmospheric changes gets out there.
