The overall objective of Medcyclones is to establish efficient networking between stakeholders, operational weather forecasters and researchers, which is timely and essential to address both challenges of research coordination and operational implementation of scientific results into weather and climate services.

This Action will coordinate the activities of researchers in meteorology and climatology and scientists from weather/climate services with the main aims:

   to provide a deeper understanding of Mediterranean cyclones and

   to improve significantly the European capacity to predict their environmental and climate impacts.

In this context, the network will identify, and involve in the network, relevant stakeholders with different backgrounds (e.g. civil protection, re-insurance companies) and co-develop cyclone prediction products tailored to their needs.
