About Us

European Extreme Events Climate Index is a project that originated from the partnership between the IFAB (International Foundation Big Data and Artificial Intelligence for Human Development), the CMCC (Euro-Mediterranean Climate Change Centre) Foundation and Leithà (Unipol Group Data Science and Computer Science Centre), within the IFAB’s annual innovative project selection and funding activities.

IFAB operates in the context of the Emilia-Romagna Data Valley and the Technopole of Bologna to play the role of a connector between the major national and international networks in the field of supercomputing and the worlds of technology, research, and their concrete applications in the industrial and social spheres.

The CMCC Foundation conducts studies and models of the European climate system and its interactions with society to provide reliable, timely, and rigorous results. The aim is to promote sustainable growth, protect the environment, and develop, within the context of climate change, adaptation and mitigation policies based on scientific knowledge.

The Center of Excellence in Data Science and Computer Science at Unipol Group develops solutions, applications, and data-intensive components, with a focus on activities such as Data Mining, Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Software Engineering.
