Future Analytics Consulting Ltd (FAC) Awarded European Commission Horizon 2020 relating to Future Proofing Strategies for Resilient Transport Networks against Extreme Events
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.
This will assist in the move towards a performance-based risk assessment framework, relying on: a) an update on best available methodologies, practices and solutions with data-enhanced models, solutions and cost benefit assessments, b) the development of new solutions regarding drainage, pavements and landslides, and c) a detailed strategy for its successful implementation, integrated into the commonly applied infrastructure life-cycle procedures. The setting up of a ‘Stakeholders Reference Group’ during the early stages of the project will guarantee that the needs and requirements of all end-users will be considered and addressed.
Future Analytics Consulting (FAC) will lead the Projects’ commercial exploitation, communication and dissemination activities, and will also have a direct involvement in the updating of methodologies, practices and solutions, the development of the ‘Response, Mitigation and Adaptation Toolkit’, and the application and validation of the solutions to selected case studies in Italy, Portugal, Spain, UK and Germany.
The FORESEE Project consists of a consortium of 18 partners, it will be coordinated by the Spanish applied research and technology organisation Tecnalia. The Project will commence in May 2018 and will be completed in 2021 and the total value of the Project is €4.96m.
FAC have secured some 14 European Commission funded projects over the last seven years.
