The Community Climate Change Consortium for Ireland (C4I) Project was
established in 2003, and is based in the headquarters of Met Éireann,
the Irish National Meteorological Service, in Dublin. Its main objective
is to consolidate and intensify the national effort in climate change
research, by building a capability for carrying out regional climate modelling
in Ireland and to provide assistance to Irish scientists utilizing climate
model output for their analyses. External funding for the project finished at the end of 2007. However, climate modeling work continues as a core activity of Met Éireann.
