News EU-CRUE Project - recommendations published on flood research

The CRUE ERA-NET has published a raft of recommendations aimed at improving the coordination of flood-related research programmes in Europe. Proposals include the pooling of experts to identify research needs and the creation of a joint research agenda for flood research.

ERA-NETs were designed to encourage the coordination of national and regional programmes. The CRUE ERA-NET was established to consolidate existing European flood research programmes, promote best practice and develop future joint activities in flood research. The network has published a good practice guide which provides an overview of the various opportunities for programme development and the organisation of flood related research. It is based on a survey of flood research programmes in 11 European countries.
