RISC-KIT draws to a close but continues to have much to offer
The sun set on the EU FP7 project RISC-KIT on 30 April this year, as the 3.5 year project reached its end.

RISC-KIT was a collaboration between 18 partners from 10 countries and 2 international organisations that aimed to develop methods, tools and management approaches to reduce risk and increase resilience to low-frequency, high-impact hydro-meteorological events in the coastal zone.

The project went above and beyond its original objectives, producing a suite of five tools designed to help coastal managers better prepare for and deal with coastal flooding from storm surges. EurOcean contributed to the overall project by outlining and executing the dissemination plan, which saw the development of a series of films and movies, available on the RISC-KIT YouTube Channel, the organisation of two summer schools, the organisation of various End User events, the production of a project newsletter, and much more.

You can find all the outputs from the project via the Results section of the project website, as well as a brand new policy brief outlining all the main recommendations from the project.
