IS-ENES3 is the third phase of the infrastructure project of ENES, the European Network for Earth System modelling (https://enes.org).
ENES gathers the European community developing and using climate models of the Earth system and their data. Collectively, ENES has a mandate to better understand past and present-day climate and to project future variability and changes under anthropogenic and natural forcing. This community is a key player in the assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and provides the multi-model climate projections on which EU mitigation and adaptation policies are built.
IS-ENES has been funded by the European Commission to foster collaboration among the modelling groups to speed-up the development of models of the complex Earth’s climate system, namely “Earth System models” (ESMs); delivers common strategies for research infrastructures; and facilitates the sharing of data archives and high-performance computing facilities.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824084.
