The primary purpose of this project is to develop a platform capable of running large ensembles of simulations with a suite of models, to handle the complex and voluminous datasets generated, to facilitate the evaluation and validation of the models and the use of higher resolution models.

This project gather the developers of the two French climate models, IPSL-CM and CNRM-CM, and experts in High Performance Computing (HPC). It is founded by the French National Research Agency (ANR) for the period 2013-2017.
