Subject Area: TRANSPORT (including Aeronautics)

The goal of EWENT project is to assess the impacts of extreme weather events on EU transport system. EWENT will also evaluate the efficiency, applicability and finance needs for adoption and mitigation measures which will dampen and reduce the costs of weather impacts. The methodological approach is based on generic risk management framework that follows a standardised process from identification of hazardous phenomena (extreme weather), followed by impact assessment and closed by mitigation and risk control measures.
