BETTER FORECASTING AND DIRECTION

The project wanted to offer improvements in available information and skills related to adaptation and better decision making (probability forecasts and uncertainties is in crisis). The value of a prediction depends on the quality (accuracy and security) of the predictions, so that decisions can be made based on the available information. For both aspects (better and / or more reliable decisions) new methods and techniques are developed and used in research applications. The objectives of the project were:
