Article published on 18 June 2019

A first draft of the MoU for the single consortium was produced by the convergence Working Group and scrutinized by the ALADIN PAC and the HIRLAM HAC. This document was distributed to the ALADIN General Assembly and HIRLAM Council in May 2010.
The HIRLAM Council will discuss it on 28 June in Lisbon. The ALADIN GA is invited either to join the HIRLAM Council or to send comments by E-mail (the convergence Working Group can then digest the written reactions and present them during the HIRLAM Council meeting).

A first draft of the MoU for the single consortium was produced by the convergence Working Group as it was tasked during the latest joint ALADIN General Assembly/HIRLAM Council in Zagreb. This document has been scrutinized by the ALADIN PAC and the HIRLAM HAC during their joint meeting on 14 May 2019 in Norrköping.

Additionally, Météo-France made a proposal for a new type of membership for Associate Members.

Both the draft MoU and the proposal for Associate Members will be discussed during the HIRLAM Council on 28 June in Lisbon, that will take place after the ECMWF Council that week. Since there is no extra General Assembly meeting planned at this time of the year, the ALADIN GA members are invited to provide their comments :

  • by E-mail: the convergence Working Group can then digest the written reactions and present them during the HIRLAM Council meeting.
  • by joining the HIRLAM Council for this item on their agenda.
    The minutes of this discussion during the Lisbon meeting will be distributed to both ALADIN and HIRLAM Assemblies.

Based on these feedback the convergence Working Group will continue to improve the text and provide, after consulting PAC and HAC in the fall, a consolidated version for the next joint ALADIN General Assembly/HIRLAM Council at the end of this year.
