The Department of Meteorology (DoM) in Cyprus organized a workshop for presenting the meteorological radar service network which is now available to the DoM on 17 November 2017 at Athalassa. During the workshop Dr. K. Nikolaides the Director of DoM presented the advantages of running a system like this especially for measuring rainfall, since the measurements are automatically recorded and processes by sophisticated algorithms. The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Kougiali, noticed that this knowledge is not only about the satisfaction of academic research topics but also for the satisfaction of a series of needs such as flight and ship security, the investigations conducted in the exclusive zone of Cyprus as well as the timely updating of the weather for the appearance of extreme weather phenomena. Dr. R. Mamouri and Dr. A. Nisantzi had the opportunity to discuss with the Dr. K. Nikolaides the forthcoming collaboration through EXCELSIOR project by preparing a letter of commitment.
