This report is a summary of the presentations, discussions and suggestions from the Earth Prediction Innovation Center (EPIC) Community Workshop that was held August 6-8, 2019 at the University of Colorado, Boulder University Memorial Center. This workshop was convened by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and was designed to engage the weather enterprise in the planning, development, and strategy for EPIC.
NOAA is committed to working closely with community members to plan and build EPIC. The EPIC Community Workshop included several objectives to achieve this end, which included:
1. Co-creating a vision for the EPIC to accelerate the transition of research to operations (R2O).
2. Sharing the current status and future of community-based Earth System Modeling. 3. Understanding NOAA’s developmental process for EPIC and create shared next steps in the development of EPIC. 4. Identifying emerging technologies for Earth System Modeling.
