The Frederick Research Centre (FRC) as coordinator of the European research project BeRTISS (Balkan – Mediterranean Real Time Severe Weather Service) successfully co-organised the third project co-ordination meeting with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, which included a press conference in the building of the Research Output Centre (Kede) of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
The main objective of the project is the establishment of the first transnational service via a new data analysis centre, to operate at the Frederick Research Centre which will monitor extreme weather events in the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean region which exploits atmospheric measurements in real time global navigation satellite systems.
The BeRTISS project, with a total budget of €1,063,941, is funded by the interregional cooperation programme ‘Balkan – Mediterranean 2014-2020’, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the national funds of the participating countries.
