EU-MACS: call for external expertise (EXTENDED DEADLINE!)

EU-MACS is a recently-started project whose goal is to make the wealth of climate information truly accessible and applicable for a large variety of potential climate service users. In cooperation with current and potential CS users the EU-MACS project will develop mechanisms that should assist both CS providers and users in better matching their products, capabilities, and needs, while at the same time also smoothing the processes for search, selection, tailoring, and (decision oriented) using of climate service products.
