The 5th ALADIN MoU was signed in Budapest on February 10, 2016 during the 20th ALADIN General Assembly.

The differences from the 4th MoU concern :

  • the introduction of the notion of Canonical Model Configurations (i.e. AROME or ALARO)
  • the new half-time ALADIN funded position for a Code Architect
  • the increase of the flat-rate ceiling to take into account the CA funded position
  • some changes in the article 11 about "Ownership, avalability and use of ALADIN products".
  • the ALADIN-HIRLAM cooperation agreement was removed from the MoU text and remains as a stand alone document that was signed by the ALADIN GA chair and the HIRLAM Council chair at the 2nd joint GA/Council meeting in Darmstadt on December 8, 2016.
