Call Meetings


UFRIM - Urban Flood Risk Management

21/08/2011

The aim of the conference from 21st to 23rd September 2011 was to provide a forum for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas and sample applications in order to gain new knowledge as well as to identify research needs.

CRUE Final Symposium

19/08/2011

Between September 19 and 22, 2011, the Final CRUE Symposium took place at the Technical University in Graz. As the CRUE symposium marks the finalization of the 2nd CRUE funding initiative and the seven joint research projects, it allowed researchers, funders and evaluators to discuss, review and evaluate their work done between 2009 and 2011.

Between September 19 and 22, 2011, the Final CRUE Symposium took place at the Technical University in Graz. As the CRUE symposium marks the finalization of the 2nd CRUE funding initiative and the seven joint research projects, it allowed researchers, funders and evaluators to discuss, review and evaluate their work done between 2009 and 2011.

Obstacles, bases and chances to effective risk communication, decision making processes and stakeholder interaction represent some of the main investigation challenges. The seven joint CRUE research projects made a significant effort to support communities in the enhancement of flood resilience. They generated expert knowledge on the implementation of the EU Floods Directive and shed light on the needs of further research.

In addition to the professional exchange, the remaining CRUE activities were defined during a meeting of the Steering Committee. These include dissemination and synthesis activities. The final project reports can be downloaded at:

Mid-term Meeting of the 2nd Common Call: Flood Resilient Communities - Managing the Consequences of Flooding

20/10/2010

Type: Researcher Meeting with Project Team Access Date: 19-20 October 2010 Venue: Fundacion Gomez Pardo, Calle de Alenza, 1, Madrid

The mid-term meeting for the CRUE 2nd common call on 'Flood Resilient Communities-Managing the Consequences of Flooding' was held on Tuesday, 19th October 2010/ Wednesday, 20th October 2010 in Madrid.

Researchers presented preliminary results of the transnational projects funded by the ERA-NetCRUE 2nd funding initiative. Overarching questions were discussed in thematically differentiated groups.

Given our emphasis on ensuring the uptake of cutting edge research into flood risk management policy and practice, all those involved in the projects with an interest in flood risk management were welcomed.
 
We would like to thank all participants and organizers who helped make the meeting successful!


Kick Off Meeting of the 2nd Common Call: 'Flood Resilient Communities - Managing the Consequences of Flooding'

21/10/2009

On 20-21 October 2009 the Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA) hosted the Kick Off Meeting for the CRUE 2nd Common Call on 'Flood Resilient Communities - Managing the Consequences of Flooding' in Rome, Italy.

On 20-21 October 2009 the Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA) hosted the Kick Off Meeting for the CRUE 2nd Common Call on 'Flood Resilient Communities - Managing the Consequences of Flooding' iRomeItalyMarking the formal start of this funding initiative, researchers had the opportunity to introduce research objectives for their transnational projects to a wide audience of researchers, research funders, policy makers and practitioners. Attended by approximately 90 participants, our key objectives were to foster communication between all the parties involved, identify opportunities for synergies between projects and explore options to ensure the effective implementation of research outputs into flood risk management policy and practice.     

In preparation of the workshop, each project prepared a 1-page “fact sheet” to outline key elements of the research project. Posters were displayed during the meeting to provide participants with a quick overview of the project concept. Posters can be downloaded via the links below. The project fact sheets and posters are available via the project list. Other information on the joint funding initiave can be found from the Call text, forms and background information page.

On the first day of the meeting, researchers had an opportunity to meet with their project teams and meet with CRUE Partners, the alpS team responsible for co-ordinating the joint funding initiative and CRUE evaluators. A short workshop to discuss thoughts for optimum collaboration and integration was held by alpS with a view to ensuring effective communication throughout the joint funding initiative. On the second day, each project co-ordinator presented their key research concepts to a wide audience. Plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion was provided, along with a final discussion session focussed on the embedding and uptake of research outputs by flood risk management policy and practice. The presentations given are available via the project list
