RISC-KIT (2013-2017) is an EU FP7 Collaborative project. RISC-KIT will develop methods, tools and management approaches to reduce risk and increase resilience to low-frequency, high-impact hydro-meteorological events in the coastal zone. These products will enhance forecasting, prediction and early warning capabilities, improve the assessment of long-term coastal risk and optimise the mix of prevention, mitigation and preparedness measures.
RISC-KIT will host a special day for End-Users in Brussels next month, on 14th October 2015.
RISC-KIT published a new research paper entitled:"The contribution of short-waves in storm surges: Two case studies in the Bay of Biscay."
The result of a collaboration between RISC-KIT partner, LIENs-CNRS, together with BGS IT & E (Germany) and the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (UK), was published in Continental Shelf Research.
An Italian web area dedicated to RISC-KIT has been developed by the University of Ferrera
