Developer's Committee meeting Tuesday 3 July 2018

Last edition: Wikinfo(changed_ts)? by Wikinfo(changed_by)?

The usual mid-year videoconference meeting of Developer's Committee took place on 3 July afternoon. The expected participants to this meeting are the members of Developer’s Committee: Consortium and External experts, so as the leaders of each NEMO Working Group, and the NEMO System Team members as permanent invitees.


Chair: Mike Bell

Introduction (C. Lévy) 5 mn

Changes in the Consortium, update the description of its organisation, request for advice of the Committee.

Changes in NEMO Consortium and organisation:

  • INGV has announced in May intention to leave the NEMO Consortium. No news since then
  • Consortium agreement needs to be updated
  • Following the ideas which came out one year ago in Barcelona, Developer’s Committee is becoming more and more the NEMO Scientific Advisory Board. Indeed, the unique NEMO Scientific Leader role is now replaced by a distributed expertise through the leaders of Working Groups
  • A document describing Consortium goals and organisation, the role of the different Committees, etc… requested by Steering Committee for Autumn 2018 (advices welcome to C. Lévy)
  • ECMWF now hopes to contribute more to NEMO Working groups
  • The idea of moving from a NEMO Users meeting organised by System Team every 2 years to a NEMO community EGU session increasing visibility of NEMO community and its scientific projects is in the air (proposal to be submitted to EGU before September 2018)
