The International Project Office for CORDEX (IPOC) is hosted by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) at their headquarters in Norrköping, Sweden. The role of the IPOC is to:

  1. Support the CORDEX Science Advisory Team (CORDEX-SAT) in the planning and implementation of CORDEX priorities;
  2. Ensure appropriate international coordination between the CORDEX regions, institutes and individuals;
  3. Build relationships with the impacts and adaptation, and end user communities to ensure their needs are addressed by CORDEX activities;
  4. Collaborate with relevant WCRP and other international programmes;
  5. To promote capacity development particularly in developing regions and among young scientists;
  6. Actively disseminate and communicate the work of CORDEX.
