■ OpenSense - COST Action CA20136

Working Groups

The Action OPENSENSE objectives will be addressed by five Working Groups (WGs) which will closely coordinate their activities with each other.
WG1 is focused on improving availability of well-documented OS historical and operational data and definition of benchmark datasets.
WG2 l coordinates comparison and homogenisation of methods needed for operationalisation of OS precipitation observations with focus on i) automated quality control, ii) fast processing, and iii) uncertainty assessment.
WG3 coordinates the research agenda on merging different types of OS with each other and with traditional observations. It will coordinate the creation of OS precipitation products in historical and operational mode and their application in weather and hydrological forecasts.
WG4 coordinates stakeholder involvement and communication with external stakeholders, the scientific community, and the broader public. It develops strategies for unlocking OS data and their uptake through stakeholder engagement.
WG5 manages internal communication, knowledge exchange and capacity building. It is also in charge of coordinating Working Group cross-activities, identifying possible synergies and thus maximizing the Actions impact.
