Coordination and Implementation Group

TEAMx activities are supervised by a Coordination and Implementation Group (CIG) established in September 2017.

Programme Coordination Office

In August 2018, a TEAMx Programme Coordination Office (PCO) was created at the University of Innsbruck. The TEAMx PCO receives financial support from the Center for Climate Systems Modeling, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Meteo France, MeteoSwiss, the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, the University of Innsbruck, the University of Trento, GeoSphere Austria.


Two committees, the Field Observations Committee (FOC) and the Numerical Modelling Committee (NMC) are responsible for coordinating and leading the design of strategically important matters, i.e. the main field campaign and modelling experiments.

Task Teams

Task Teams are appointed to plan, coordinate, and implement specific tasks to facilitate programme activities. Currently, there are four Task Teams: Task Team Implementation Plan, Task Team Flight Planning, Task Team UAS, and Task Team Data Management.

Working Groups

There are six Working Groups (WG) focusing on a series of scientific topics concerning the atmosphere over mountainous terrain: chemistry, boundary layer, climate, convection, surface exchange, waves and dynamics. The role of the WGs is to identify specific research goals (based on the TEAMx White Paper), help shape the design of the field campaign and modeling experiments, foster collaboration among members and develop proposals.


Funding for TEAMx research is acquired through a bottom-up approach. Participating scientists and institutions gather the necessary financial resources from projects supported by national and international research funding agencies after successful peer-review. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed among the institutions that support TEAMx. The TEAMx partnership welcomes new participating institutions, as foreseen by ยง21 of the MoU.

Science Advisory Board

In 2023, a Science Advisory Board (SAB) was established to oversee and review planned activities. Its members are renowned scientists from a diverse range of fields, each bringing their unique expertise to the table.


TEAMx is endorsed by the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP), as an Endorsed Project, and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), as a Crosscutting project within the Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP).
