Kick off meeting: project TRANSALP

  • English

The Trans-Alp Project – Transboundary Storm Risk and Impact Assessment in Alpine regions – funded by the European Union through the European Civil Protection Programme, has officially started on February 02nd!

The project foster collaboration with transboundary countries to collect datasets and to build a methodology useful to forecast and prevent the impact of storm events.

The severity and frequency of extreme weather events possibly influenced by climate change increasingly threaten environmental and socio-economic systems. An example is the 2018 Vaia storm, which strongly affected Italy, Austria, France and Switzerland. Therefore there is a need to provide improved tools to conduct efficient climate risk assessments for cross-border areas.

The Institute of Earth Observation is the leading partner within a transboundary consortium. Beside the Climate and Disaster Risk research group, the technologists of the Center for Sensing Solutions will collaborate in the project to setup the webgis platform for the spatial data information, produced in the project, and will provide the technical support for processing and managing the data.

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
