Exeter participates in vital EU climate change project
Researchers and academics from CWS are participating in EU-CIRCLE project to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure networks to cope with the changing climate.
EU-CIRCLE is focusing on the relationship between modern infrastructure systems, and the cascading effects caused by extreme events. The main objectives of EU-CIRCLE are defining a holistic climate resilience infrastructure model and its constitutional components to develop the technical solution that will implement it and to extensively validate it in real world test cases. EU-CIRCLE will also link to awareness activities to integrate Critical Infrastructure stakeholders, and provide an innovative model building upon the technical capabilities of Climate Infrastructure Resilience Platform (CIRP). The project uses five international case studies, one of which is the coastal flooding in Torbay.
