CAFE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, funded by theEuropean Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme

Climate extremes such as heat waves or tropical storms have huge social and economic impact. The forecasting of such extreme events at the sub-seasonal time scale (from 10 days to 3 months) is challenging. Since the atmosphere and the ocean are coupled systems of enormous complexity, in order to advance sub-seasonal predictability of extreme events, it is crucial to train a new kind of interdisciplinary top-level researchers, which is the objective of this Training Network.

Besides Training, Management and Dissemination, CAFE research is structured in three scientific Workpackages:
- Atmospheric and oceanic processes
- Extreme events
- Tools for predictability
