The overarching goal of APPLICATE is to develop enhanced predictive capacity for weather and climate in the Arctic and beyond, and to determine the influence of Arctic climate change on Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, for the benefit of policy makers, businesses and society.


To achieve its mission, APPLICATE will address the following 7 top-level objectives:

  • Observationally constrain models using advanced metrics and diagnostics
  • Develop enhanced weather and climate models
  • Determine the impact of Arctic climate change on mid latitudes through atmospheric and oceanic linkages
  • Contribute to the design of the future Arctic observing system
  • Enhance the capacity to predict Northern Hemisphere weather and climate
  • Develop and implement APPLICATE’s research programme in coordination with external scientific partners to exploit synergies
  • Transfer the knowledge generated through APPLICATE to stakeholders including training of early career scientists
