The project RegioExAKT, that was funded by the German ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and ended in 2010, had the following main objective:

Determination of the trends in occurrence of, and threat by, severe convective storms in (southern) Germany until 2030, as well as the development of adaptation concepts for targeted main users (Munich Reinsurance Group, Munich international airport) on the spatial and temporal scales relevant for their business operations.

Within the RegioExakt Project, an important task of the European Severe Storms Laboratory was to provide climatological information on severe thunderstorm events. Moreover, the European Severe Weather Database was enhanced with an interface to the automatic reporting system of our German partner Skywarn Germany.
