RISC-KIT is gearing up for its 2nd End-User Day

RISC-KIT will host a special day for End-Users in Brussels next month, on 14th October 2015.

RISC-KIT End-Users' Day Announcement 

 

RISC-KIT's 2nd End-User Day will provide the opportunity for local end-users and researchers to exchange knowledge and ideas on the products and knowledge that are being developed in RISC-KIT. This special event will not only present the development of the RISC-KIT tools through application examples, but will seek to actively stimulate discussion and gather feedback for future improvement of RISC-KIT’s tools and prototypes so as to better meet the needs as the project end-user.

  

RISC-KIT tools will be showcased during the event, namely:

  • Coastal Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) – Allowing rapid assessment of present and future hot spot areas that are most at risk.
  • Early-Warning System and Decision Support System (EWS/DSS) – Predicting hazard intensities and evaluating different management strategies.
  • Web-based guide to Disaster Risk Reduction – Providing solutions for prevention, mitigation and preparedness.
  • Coastal Risk Database – Providing physical and socio-economic data, past and present, from vulnerable coastal areas.

 

The meeting will also provide an opportunity for networking between officials from a variety of important coastal regions in Europe, as well as representatives from DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission and the project’s International Board Members from Australia and the U.S.A.
