FLOODrisk 2012 Special Session: The EU Floods Directive: Potential barriers and best practices in science-policy interfacing 

Knowledge development on flood risk management and protection of the built environment has taken big steps forward, driven by the strategic goals of the Floods Directive and support from FP7 initiatives. Various barriers have been identified which could stand in the way of effective utilization of the knowledge developed for implementation of the Floods Directive.

Session 1 on Tuesday 20th November focuses on Science-Policy-Interface issues that may hinder implementation of the Floods Directive.

Session 2 on Wednesday 21st November explores possible solutions and actions to over come these issues.

The conclusions from this work will be integrated into a position paper from the conference, feeding back to the EU in support of the Horizon 2020 research programme.

If you are unable to attend the conference or the special sessions, you are able to give your views and contribute to the position paper through the following short online survey: http://www.floodprobe.eu/FLOODrisk2012/survey.php
