ECMWF is an intergovernmental organisation which includes EU and non-EU member countries.


As an international organisation born of European nations pooling their resources, we trust that the spirit of collaboration which is the essence of ECMWF will continue notwithstanding the fact that the UK has voted to leave the EU.


Over the 40 years of its existence, ECMWF has been living proof of what cooperation between EU and non-EU members can deliver in the scientific field, and we believe it will remain that way.
