ECMWF needs up-to-date satellite observations of weather-related variables to initialise its forecasts and to conduct research. Its partnership with EUMETSAT is essential in this regard.

Forecast charts and data
We provide current forecasts, climate reanalyses and specific datasets. These are available via the web, point-to-point dissemination, data servers and broadcasting.
ECMWF has implemented an upgrade of its Integrated Forecasting System, including a move from double to single precision and an increase in the vertical resolution of ensemble forecasts. #IFS47r2 #newfcsystem Find out more here: https://www.ecmwf.int/en/about/media-centre/news/2021/forecast-upgrade-i...
Workshops and education
Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.
ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
International collaboration is fundamental to the work of ECMWF, working with the EU and the meteorological community at large, including the World Meteorological Organization, space agencies, and scientists around the world.
