FRAMES project presented in Poland
Invited by the German Ministry of Research and Education, Jade University and University of Jena organized an international workshop on ‘Water related resources and hazards’ at the Pol-Eco System trade fair in Poznan. The Pol-Eco System is the most important environmental trade fair in central Europe.
FRAMES was introduced by Dr. Helge Bormann (Jade University), who explained the underlying concepts such as the Multi-Layer-Safety concept and related pilot activities of the Wesermarsch pilot (Germany). Further research activities on flood risk management were presented by Jena University (Germany), the Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw) and the University of Torun (Poland).
Transferability of concepts
Since climate change requires adaptation activities in the North Sea Region as well as in the Baltic Sea Region, applicability and transferability of concepts were discussed in detail. For the future, joint research activities are envisaged to share experience and to further develop the underlying concepts applied in FRAMES.
