Project sheet - CRUE (Coordination of research financed in the European Union on flood risk management)

Project ID: 515742
Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION


This is a brochure for the CRUE project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). CRUE was set up to consolidate existing European flood research programmes, promote best practice and identify gaps and opportunities for collaboration on future programme content. Specifically, CRUE European Research Area network (ERA-NET) aimed to reduce this fragmentation in research by synthesising information on Europe's flood management research programmes and enabling partners to share insights into flood risk management. The CRUE network was an important tool for making European and national flood management policy. Policy-makers set the context and priorities for research, while network results should inform policy choices. Decisions were made about the sustainable development of river catchments and coastal defenses.
