The first deliverable has officially been submitted to the EU. D4.1 Risk and Quality Management Plan sets out the baseline of internal quality management including the identification of Key Performance Indicators and related metrics that will help the project to measure its progress.
The CONFESS project has officially started on the 1st of November 2020. Led by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts and with Partners Meteo-France, Barcelona Supercomputing Centre and the Italian National Research Council, the project will run for 36 months with the aim to improve the reliability and usability of Copernicus Climate Change Service information in the land-atmosphere coupled system by exploiting new and improved Earth Observations data records of land-use, vegetation states and surface-emitted aerosols delivered across different Copernicus Services.
The project had its virtual Kick-off meeting on the 3rd and 4th of November, bringing together both members of the consortium as well as stakeholders and advisers. The meeting focused on planning the work for the first year of the project.
