IFAB presents the European Extreme Events Climate Index developed by CMCC and Leithà
The International Foundation Big Data and Artificial Intelligence for Human Development (IFAB) has the mandate to promote cooperation between public and private sectors in the field of innovative technologies.
Collaboration between the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) and Leithà resulted in the development and implementation of IFAB’s first project: the European Extreme Events Climate Index (E³CI).
E³CI is a brand new, innovative operational service for weather-induced hazard risk assessment and management.
