These grants have been co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. AWI simulations were performed at the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ). The work of Dmitry Sein was supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the project SPACES-AGULHAS (research Grant 03G0835B). The REMO (GERICS) simulations were supported by BMBF and performed under the "Konsortial'' share at the German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ). Bodo Ahrens acknowledges support from Senckenberg BiK-F. The calculations for WRF IPSL-INERIS were made in collaboration with R. Vautard (IPSL/CNRS) using the TGCC super computers under the GENCI time allocation GEN6877. The work of Sophie Bastin has received funding from the French National Research Agency (ANR) projects REMEMBER (Contract ANR-12-SENV-001) and granted access to the HPC resources of IDRIS (under allocation i2011010227). The KNMI-RACMO2 simulations were supported by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. Part of the SMHI contribution was carried out in the Swedish Mistra-SWECIA programme founded by Mistra (the Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research).
