How to apply for CORDEX FPS

Applications are invited for groups within, and linked to, CORDEX communities across the globe to propose ‘Flagship Pilot Studies (FPS)’. The FPS will focus on sub-continental-scale targeted regions, so as to allow a number of capabilities towards addressing key scientific questions and needs of the vulnerability, impact & adaptation community and end users.

FPS proposals should be driven by the regional CORDEX communities, although sharing common protocols so as to allow easier exchange of know-how.

FPS proposals will be reviewed and endorsed by the CORDEX SAT, together with selected external reviewers, according to the criteria listed in the ‘FPS Criteria & Guidelines’ document.
Instructions on how to submit your proposal found below or under the Experiment Guidelines tab of the menu above.
