This report gives a synthetic overview of the recent status of regional climate modelling activities for Belgium performed at three institutions: Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMI) and the departments of Earth- and Environmental Sciences and Civil Engineering at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven(KU Leuven). It provides a basis for the coordination and strengthening of the collaboration between the different partners involved in regional climate modelling at the Belgian level in view of creating Belgian climate services. It reinforces the idea that it is beneficial to use the outputs of a wide community of Belgian climate modelling groups and the importance of statistical model output processing is stressed to (a) deal with model biases and (b) to infer the uncertainties that are identified in the outputs of the international model intercomparison projects to the Belgian regional level
