 Briefly describe your organisation
UBIMET ranks among the leading weather service providers in Central and Eastern Europe. Around 80 highly qualified experts in the fields of meteorology, physics, biology and geography issue customised, individual and precise weather forecasts. In our own department of research and development and in cooperation with international research institutions, weather models, products and forecast technologies are continually refined - this way, we can offer the best forecasts, which are always up to date with the current state of the science. In addition to local and regional forecasts, UBIMET has established a reputation for locally and temporally exact severe weather forecasts. UBIMET operates the Severe Weather Centre in Austria, which warns public authorities, insurance companies and infrastructure operators of severe weather around the clock. Our customers include prestigious companies in the energy sector, building industry, infrastructure sector, media sector and insurance industry.
