The core mission of the METEO research group is to conduct high-impact meteorological and wildfire research, thereby providing improved tools, services and policies to the community and stakeholders, both in Greece and around the world. The outcomes of the research group include new scientific knowledge, improved prediction tools, and early warning systems that promote adaptation and enhance resilience to climate change. Moreover, the METEO group operates, with more than 350.000 daily visitors on average, contributing thus immensely to the dissemination of the research outcomes and their transformation in tools and service for the end-users and the general public.
