HOW VULNERABLE ARE OUR TRANSPORT, ENERGY AND TELECOMMUNICATION INFRASTRUCTURES?
RAIN contributes to minimising the impact of extreme weather events on transport, energy and telecommunication networks. The project will develop early warning systems, decision support tools and engineering solutions to ensure rapid reinstatement of the network. This will improve reliability of critical infrastructures and reduce disruption for citizens.
The aim of the RAIN Final Event is to disseminate the significant achievements and results of the project. During the last three years, extreme weather events and their impacts upon land- based infrastructure in Europe… Read More
