  1. Improve our capacity to predict weather and climate in the Northern Hemisphere, and make it possible to better forecast extreme weather phenomena
  2. Improve our capacity to respond to the impact of climate change on the environment  and human activities in the Arctic, both in the short and longer term
  3. Improve the capacity of climate models to represent Arctic warming and its impact on regional and global atmospheric and oceanic circulation
  4. Improve the uptake of measurements from satellites by making use of new Earth observation assets
  5. Lead to optimised observation systems for various modelling applications
  6. Contribute to a robust and reliable forecasting framework that can help meteorological and climate services deliver better predictions, including at sub-seasonal and seasonal time scales
  7. Contribute to better servicing the economic sectors that rely on improved forecasting capacity (e.g. shipping, mining)
  8. Contribute to the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) and IPCC scientific assessments, as well as to the Copernicus Climate Change (C3S) services
  9. Improve the professional skills and competences of those working and being trained to work within this subject area
