Technologies for the cost-effective
Flood Protection of the Built Environment

FloodProBE is a European research project with the objective of providing cost-effective solutions for flood risk reduction in urban areas.
FloodProBE aims to develop technologies, methods and tools for flood risk assessment and for the practical adaptation of new and
existing buildings, infrastructure and flood defences leading to a better understanding of vulnerability, flood resilience and defence
performance. This research supports implementation of the Floods Directive through the development of more effective flood risk
management strategies. The work is being undertaken in close partnership with industry, and is
utilising pilot sites across Europe, to help provide practical industry
guidance and cost effective construction solutions.
