Iceland acquires full voting rights at ECMWF


Earlier this year an agreement was signed, stating that Iceland was to become ECMWF‘s nineteenth member state. This marked a new chapter in the long relationship between ECMWF and Iceland, which had been a co-operating State since 1980.

As a Member State, Iceland acquired full voting rights at the ECMWF Council, starting at the 75th Council session on 16 and 17 June 2011. Also, a portion of the Centre's computer and archive resources will be allocated to Iceland for its own use.

To mark the event, Árni Snorrason, Director-General of IMO, raised the Icelandic flag in front of the headquarters in Reading. Watching: Alan Thorpe, new Director-General of ECMWF, Dominique Marbouty, former Director-General of ECMWF, and Francois Jacq, President of ECMWF.
