Inger-Lise Frogner new PL EPS

Dear HIRLAM colleagues,

Some time ago, our project leader for probabilistic forecasting (PL EPS), Trond Iversen, informed me that he wished to resign from his position by the end of 2011.This meant that  a new project leader had to be attracted for this position, starting from 1 January 2012 until the end of 2015, and the HIRLAM Council decided to open an application procedure for this position. Interviews have been held with the applicants by a selection committee. The HIRLAM Council has decided this week to accept the candidate proposed in the recommendation of the selection committee: Inger-Lise Frogner from met.no.

Hereby I wish Inger-Lise the best of luck in her new role, and hope that it will be a rewarding and interesting experience for her. Certainly there will be plenty of interesting scientific challenges to meet for her and her team! I hereby also take the opportunity to thank Trond again for all the hard work he has put in as PL: he has done a great job in the past years in leading the effort to develop the GLAMEPS system and make it operational, and in this year to create a HarmonEPS experimental system. Both of these milestones are now very close to being achieved, and I would like to give Trond (and his team of course) full credits for them.
