EFAS Annual Meeting 2020, first announcement

by Ilias Pechlivanidis, EFAS Dissemination Centre

On behalf of the operational EFAS I would like to inform, and later formally invite all EFAS Partners, including EFAS Third Party affiliates, about the 15th EFAS annual meeting 2020, which will take place at the premises of the German Weather Service (DWD) in Offenbach (Germany) on 9-10 June 2020. The official invitation with detailed information about the event, registration form, reimbursement information, accommodation and travelling will be sent beginning of next year.

The meeting will be organized by the EFAS Dissemination Centre (RWS, SMHI and SHMÚ). It will start on Tuesday morning (9 June) and end on Wednesday afternoon (10 June). At the annual meeting we will offer workshops and trainings that will address different EFAS-related interests. 

Reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs is available for one expert per EFAS partner organisation that has signed the EFAS Conditions of Access with the Dissemination Centre. Reimbursement for potential future EFAS partners not having signed the EFAS Conditions of Access yet and other third parties cannot be guaranteed and will be decided on a case by case basis.

We would also like to encourage you to start thinking about possible contributions you would like to make, e.g. presentations or posters about new developments within your institute/agency or a noteworthy flood (flash or riverine) event that has taken place in the past year.

If you have any questions please contact the technical and local organizers:
