FAC Attend FORESEE Kick Off Meeting in Bilbao
The overall objective of the Future Proofing Strategies for Resilient Transport Networks against Extreme Events (FORESEE) Project is to develop and demonstrate a reliable and easily implementable toolkit for providing short- and long-term resilience schemes against transport disruption due to flooding, landslide and structural damage for rail and road corridors and multi-modal terminals.
FAC’s Prof. William Hynes and Dr. Sheryl Lynch attended and presented on the company’s expertise in the European Research sphere, having generated over €30 million in research funding and secured some 14 European Commission funded projects over the last seven years. They also presented on work package 8, which FAC lead, covering the dissemination and exploitation activities of this 18-partner, international consortium.
