Event Weeks

Event Weeks are online events where a series of online sessions on a specific theme are presented within a week. Experts on various topics related to the chosen theme are invited to lead these sessions, which are open to participants from all over the world. These events provide a great opportunity for the exchange of expertise and the establishment and strengthening of communication between professionals of meteorology from different WMO regions.

The Virtual Laboratory encourages the organising of such events and has supported a number of events of this kind. Some examples are the High Profile Training Event (HPTE), organised in 2006, the Mediterranean Weather Week and the Dust Week organised by EUMETSAT (2009 and 2010, respectively), and the Aviation Week organised by VLab CoE Australia (2011 and 2012) and also by VLab CoE Barbados (2012).

Event Weeks are also organised by VLab collaborators. EUMeTrain has a growing collection of Event Weeks’ resources from successful events that have been periodically organised since 2008.
