Funded by European Union Civil Protection, Grant Agreement Number 874421. Period December 2019 to November 2021.

The overall objective of the oVERFLOw project was to strengthen resilience to climate change impacts with the specific objective being the development of climate-resilient infrastructure. This was achieved by:

  • Reducing the known uncertainties in existing assessment techniques using techniques developed by the partners in recent H2020 projects, e.g. non-intrusive geophysical techniques to quantify geotechnical uncertainties and development of fragility curves for system reliability of assessment of flood defenses during a flood event.
  • The technology were deployed and demonstrated at two pilot sites, at flood prone areas in the Netherlands and Croatia in order to (i) validate the new technologies and increase the TRL levels, (ii) transfer the state of the art risk based approach from the Netherlands to Slovenia/Croatia and (iii) to provide validation and buy-in from a range of stakeholders including CPAs, infrastructure owners, regional authorities and responsible bodies for cultural heritage and the general public.
