This workshop, which will be held on the JRC-Ispra site, will address issues regarding how local/regional modelling results can be upscaled (or applied) to the European scale. The workshop also serves as a follow-up of recent JRC modelling developments and published maps on soil erosion by water and wind. The workshop will focus on how various project or local/regional modelling applications can improve “know-how” at the European scale. Emphasis will also be given to management practices that can reduce soil erosion.

The European Union has provided significant funding for research projects dealing with the impact of extreme events on critical infrastructures. Following the recommendation of the European Commission, the projects have established a technical dialogue. As several projects ended recently or will be concluded in the coming months, it is timely to disseminate their results, collect feedback from stakeholders and put forward common recommendations.
