A very successful CHE final review on 26 January and a very productive CoCO2 kick-off meeting on 27/28 January marked the beginning of 2021 in an important European CO2 week. The CHE project, coordinated by Gianpaolo Balsamo (ECMWF), ran from October 2017 to December 2020, and successfully delivered all anticipated outputs in good state and on time. All CHE deliverable reports are now online. Its follow-on is CoCO2, coordinated by Richard Engelen (ECMWF), which started in January 2021 and will continue until December 2023. Both projects support the development of the CO2 emission monitoring prototype that will be implemented as an important new Copernicus Service element.
