Events earlier this year

FLOODrisk 2012

20-22 November 2012, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The 2nd European Conference on FLOODrisk Management will explore research advances in flood risk analysis and innovations in flood risk management practice. The conference will consider all aspects of flood risk and will cover the causes of floods, their impacts on people, property and the environment, and portfolios of risk management measures.


International Conference on "Integrated Approaches for Volcanic Risk Management"

11-12 September 2012, Hohenheim University Stuttgart, Germany

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

Following the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction recommendations and starting from shared existing knowledge and practices, this conference aims at presenting innovative tools and integrated cost effective methodologies to mitigate risks from various hazards on active volcanoes (prevention, crisis management and recovering).
The focus is more particularly put on integrating tools. This concerns interdisciplinary integration between different domains (e.g. inputs of social approaches in risk mapping methodologies) but also integration between the three different phases of risk management (e.g. Information System designed to be used both for risk mapping and crisis management).

This conference serves as final workshop of the FP7 MIAVITA project.  

End of registration / deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 July 2012

 


EWENT DISSEMINATION SEMINAR

29-30 May 2012, Geneva, Switzerland

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The EWENT project dealt with extreme Weather impacts on European networks of transport. At this final conference the EWENT researchers and researchers of related projects will present their findings on:
1. What are the extreme weather phenomena that are most harmful to transport system and what and where are the biggest impacts?
2. How these phenomena are going to change in pace with expected climate change?
3. What are the total costs induced to transport system by extreme weather?
4. What European parts – geographically, mode-wise – are most vulnerable to extreme weather?
5. How can we prepare ourselves, what are the means and the tools?

Planet Under Pressure

25-29 March 2012, London, UK

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

Based on the latest scientific evidence, the London Planet Under Pressure conference will provide a comprehensive update of our knowledge of the Earth system and the pressure our planet is now under. The London conference will focus the scientific community’s and the wider world’s attention on climate, ecological degradation, human well-being, planetary thresholds, food security, energy, governance across scales and poverty alleviation.

The conference will discuss solutions, at all scales, to move societies on to a sustainable pathway. It will provide scientific leadership towards the 2012 UN Rio +20 conference.

A lunch-time side session on "Horizon2020", the EU's future instrument for research and innovation support, will take place on 27 March.

Please consult the Conference Website for more information on the programme and registration.
