ECMWF Summer of Weather Code,
a driver of innovation

More and better aircraft weather observations are possible

Summer of Weather Code in fourth round in 2021

The principle behind ESoWC is that ECMWF staff propose ideas for developments, and developers apply by proposing a solution to the proposed challenge. After the coding period, and provided that all milestones and deliverables are fulfilled, the developers receive a stipend of £5,000.

ECMWF’s Summer of Weather Code 2021 (ESoWC) will launch its fourth edition on 1 February 2021. Innovative weather, climate and atmosphere-related challenges and ideas that will be highly beneficial to ECMWF and Copernicus activities will be proposed on Github, where interested parties can submit a proposal on how to tackle the challenge.

Improvements in aircraft weather observation numbers, quality and metadata are possible if numerical weather prediction centres work with the WMO, EUMETNET and the aviation sector, according to experts who met at ECMWF on 12 and 13 February 2020.

Twelve challenges for ECMWF’s second Summer of Weather Code

ECMWF’s second Summer of Weather Code 2019

Summer coding programme inspires open-source developments

ECMWF has launched its second Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) programme open to anybody keen to develop innovative weather-related software.

Faithful to its spirit of innovation, the second ECMWF Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) programme invited proposals for up to twelve open-source projects that address weather-related software challenges. 

ECMWF’s 2019 Summer of Weather Code finished on a high with a showcase day for the seven successful projects on 20 September.
