Spotlight on hosts & sponsors

Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) and Hans-Ertel-Centre (HErZ)

Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) and Hans-Ertel-Centre (HErZ), together with DMG, have invited the EMS to hold the EMS Annual Meeting 2022 in Bonn. The Hans-Ertel-Centre (HErZ) carries out fundamental research to improve weather forecasting and climate monitoring. This is prerequisite for the DWD to be able to respond to the future challenges facing its key customers. To this aim an internationally visible competence centre is being established, creating a network between the DWD and leading meteorological research institutions in Germany.

In addition to committed work and contributions by many members of staff, DWD is sponsoring various events at the conference, onsite and online, including the welcome Icebreaker on Monday evening, professional moderation of the plenary discussion and the development of the platform for online participation.


Deutsche Meteorologische Gesellschaft (DMG)

The German Meteorological Society, DMG, is a founding Member of the EMS and was one of the drivers to make the founding of the EMS happen. DMG invited together with DWD and HErZ to hold the Annual Meeting in Germany, and supported the programme development, the organisation of workshops and the local organisation of the EMS2022.

In addition to the committed work and contributions by many of its members, the society will serve special sponge cakes designed by DMG during some of the coffee breaks.


University of Bonn, Institut für Geowissenschaften - Meteorologie

The University Bonn provides the buildings and facilities for the EMS Annual Meeting; not only the lecture rooms but also the poster area and space for side meetings and the press conference, including technical facilities, poster boards, and WiFi access for the participants. The Section Meteorology at the Institute for Geosciences at the University Bonn acts as the local host of the EMS2022 and supported the organizers in various aspects.


Solco W. Tromp Foundation

The Tromp Foundation (Foundation for Biometeorological Research), the legacy of Solco W. Tromp, is funding various awards at the EMS Annual Meetings with the intention to promote biometeorology in Europe. Biometeorology is an interdisciplinary science studying the interactions between atmospheric processes and living organisms – plants, animals and humans. It provides answers to the question: How does weather and climate impact the well-being of all living beings?

The Tromp Foundation is supporting six young scientist with travel funds to attend the EMS2022 and funds the EMS Tromp Award for an outstanding achievement in biometeorology including the travel costs for the awardee to attend the meeting in Bonn.


Harry Otten Prize Foundation

The Harry Otten Foundation announces the Harry Otten Prize with a biennial cycle since 2011; invited are ideas that are innovative, practical, realizable and bring Meteorology forward in society.

University Partnership for Atmospheric Sciences (UPAS)

The University Partnership for Atmospheric Sciences initiative has been developed by student, academic staff and faculty representatives of the 10 German universities that provide consecutive studies in the field of meteorology through both Bachelor (BSc) and Master (MSc) programmes. UPAS is open to all meteorologists at all levels and is supported by an executive office hosted at the University Bonn with the explicit goal to secure, guide and further develop meteorology as a study and research field at German universities.

UPAS is inviting Early Career Scientists at the EMS2022 to a networking lunch during the conference.
