Dear FAIRNESS participants,

We are excited to announce upcoming workshop and invite you to present your use of micrometeorological data and the challenges you are facing in the process. We particularly encourage current and future Micromet_KSP and case study participants and users.

This workshop is ideal for researchers, and experts to exchange their experience in working  with practitioners, and policymakers  in order to assess stakeholders’ and users‘ needs for data quantity, quality, and form, as well as to present actual capacites of FMP 2.0.

The Workshop is partially overlapping with EMS2024 conference. Since dissemination of the action results is important FAIRNESS activity, we encourage you to submit your contribution to EMS2024 conference. There is a several session appropriate for FAIRNESS participants (related to Urban climate, Agricultural and Forest meteorology, etc.).
