Summary on Grant Application Form
It is proposed to establish a cross-disciplinary network of excellence to address the problems of flood and coastal erosion risk analysis. The network will bring together UK academics in the fields of engineering, probability and statistics, and environmental science, along with industrial, governmental and professional organisations. It will respond to contemporary demands for improved flood risk and uncertainty analysis that are emerging from industry and government. FIoodRiskNet will complement the recently established UK Network on River Flooding Analysis and the proposed Coastal Zone networks. FIoodRiskNet has three broad aims: first, to develop a collaborative and widely recognised research community for UK academics working in the field of fluvial, coastal and dam risk, reliability and uncertainty analysis; second, to act as an information hub for exchange and dissemination of information and expertise amongst academics and between academics, government and industry; and third to establish a strategic vision of research in the field of fluvial, coastal and dam risk, reliability and uncertainty analysis and to bring forward integrated research proposals to UK and European research funders to address research needs in a co-ordinated way. It will achieve these aims by organising a programme of workshops, specialist meetings and a conference, by hosting a web site, by circulating an electronic bulletin and newsletter, by inviting three international visitors and by supporting collaborative research proposal development and dissemination activites.
