Description of Work

IS-ENES2 is structured into 11 workpackages, 5 Networking Activities (NA), 2 Service Activities (SA), 3 Joint Research Activities (JRA) and one workpackage dedicated to the project coordination & management.

Here is a schematic representation of IS-ENES2 objectives and organisation of work packages:

Objectives & WPs
List of IS-ENES2 Work Packages:

WP1: Scientific and technical coordination of IS-ENES2

This work package will ensure an effective, smooth and high-quality implementation of the project, with respect to both general administrative and management practices that are expected for projects funded via the EC programmes, and with respect to financial management.


Networking activities:

NA1 (WP2): ENES strategy

This work package aims at strengthening the integration of the ENES community.

NA2 (WP3): Towards next generation models

This work package will stimulate interactions among the community to prepare future generations of climate models.

NA3 (WP4): Earth System Modelling Environments

This work package wil complement NA2 by focusing on the model environment tools that are required to develop, run and exploit ESMs.

NA4 (WP5): Data Networking

This work package wil focus on data and metadata networking.

NA5 (WP6): Innovating on climate modelling

This work package will focus on innovation for climate modeling.


Service activities

SA1 (WP7): The European Network of geographically distributed services on Earth System models, component models and tools

It expands from IS-ENES1 service covering a wider range of services of models, with a minimum service for all 7 CMIP5 models offering expert contact to answer specific questions on models.

SA2 (WP8): ENES Climate Data Services

It is the service on data from the ENES Data Federation..


Joint research activities

JRA1 (WP9): Multi-model, multi-member high resolution Earth System Models

It will prepare multi-model multi-member high-resolution simulations for PRACE machines.

JRA2 (WP10): Performance benchmarks for coupled climate models

It will develop benchmarks for HPC and evaluate different coupling technologies.

JRA3 (WP11): Developing software infrastructure for data archive services

It will further develop methodologies and tools for climate data archives and to serve climate impacts.
