NICEST2 project: I am the project leader of the second phase of the Nordic Collaboration on e-Infrastructures for Earth System Modeling. This project focuses on strengthening the Nordic position within climate modeling by leveraging, reinforcing and complementing ongoing initiatives.

Main activities

  • Enhance the performance and optimize and homogenize workflows used, so climate models (like EC-EARTH and NorESM) can be run in an efficient way on future computing resources (like EuroHPC).
  • Widen the usage and expertise on evaluating Earth System Models and develop new diagnostic modules for the Nordic region within the ESMValTool.
  • Create a roadmap for FAIRification of Nordic climate model data.


NICEST2 is funded by the [Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC)( which facilitates development and operation of high-quality e-infrastructure solutions in areas of joint Nordic interest.
