The European Commission has recently approved the project FORESEE ‘Future proofing strategies FOr RESilient transport network against Extreme Events’ under the Research & Innovation programme Horizon 2020. Within this project, CEMOSA leads the work package in charge of the development of the resilient schemes. It also participates in other work packages and leads the developments related to the deployment of Sustainable Drainage Systems, and techniques for the elaboration of Shake Maps oriented to the seismic zoning.
The overall goal of the project is to develop and demonstrate a reliable and easily implementable toolkit for increasing the resilience in road and rail corridors, and multimodal terminals against extreme events such as floods, landslides, or earthquakes. To do that, a number of innovative technologies, methodologies, and short and long term resilient schemes will be developed in order to anticipate, adapt, or mitigate the potential effects of a disruptive event.
The project for the project is around 5 million of Euros. It will be starting during the second half of 2018 and will last three and a half years.
The project consortium consists of 18 partners from 7 European Union countries and Switzerland. They are: Tecnalia (Spain) as coordinator, CEMOSA (Spain), Rhina Consulting (Italy), Fraunhofer (Germany), Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), Future Analytics (Ireland), Ferrovial (Spain), University of Bath (UK), Louis Berger (Spain), ICC (Spain), Infraestuturas de Portugal, Aiscat (Italy), Autostrade (Italy), European Road Federation (Belgium), ETH Zürich (Switzerland), Telespazio (UK), University of Edinburgh (UK), IVE (Germany).
