ARMONIA (Applied multi Risk Mapping of Natural Hazards for Impact Assessment)
InfoLab21 hosted the 24 European delegates of the ARMONIA Mid-Term Meeting.
This three year research project involves the collaboration of natural hazard experts from across the EU Member States and Canada.
The overall aim of ARMONIA (Applied multi Risk Mapping of Natural Hazards for Impact Assessment) is to provide the European Commission with a new harmonised methodology for producing integrated risk maps to achieve more effective spatial planning procedures in areas prone to natural disasters in Europe.
Funded under Framework Package 6 the project seeks to achieve outcomes that can mitigate the adverse effects of natural phenomena, through the joint effort of the scientific community, technology experts and end users.
The target of the project is therefore not solely scientific output, but to have a measurable impact on policies and practices for disaster mitigation within the period of the project.
At the conclusion of this extremely intensive meeting all the delegates expressed their wish to pass their thanks and congratulations for the provision of such an impressive conference facility.
