Guests were invited to take part in a series of interactive sessions during the day including a discussion on the CRAF tool, an interactive workshop on coastal hazard visualization (Webviewer) and a tour through web-based management guide design and functionality. During the latter activity, guests took part in a live online poll on the features and practicalities of web-based guides.

 

Several of the End Users took part in interviews, offering their perspectives on coastal risk management and coastal resilience as well as their views on science-practice collaboration. These interviews will be available on the RISC-KIT YouTube Channel in the coming weeks.

 

The 2nd RISC-KIT End-User Day agenda  is available here, and further photos from the event will be available in the RISC-KIT gallery in the coming days.
