Partners Countries

SP(4), FR(3), IE(1), PT(2), UK(1)

Budget / ERDF

2.688.476 € / 1.734.536 €

Summary

Aims to build a Polycentric Infrastructure for Operational Ocean Modelling in the whole Atlantic Space (AS) joining capacities from all the 5 countries to forecast hydrodynamics and biogeochemistry (BGC) at the regional scale using grid sizes of a few km’s.

Project
