IS-ENES3 is the third phase of the distributed e-infrastructure of ENES (European Network for Earth System modelling), enabling the European climate modelling community to address the challenges of international intercomparison project CMIP6. IS-ENES3 will develop, document and deploy new and advanced models and tools, standards and services to deal with unprecedented data volumes and model complexity. The Centre of Excellence ESiWACE2 brings together 20 partners from 9 European countries and plans to further push Earth System Model technology towards execution on upcoming pre-exascale and exascale systems. These two projects will finance Cerfacs activities around code coupling, in particular the further development of the OASIS coupler, upstream technical developments for climate services (climate4impact portal) and for the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) ensuring the dissemination and analysis of model output and observational data.
