Development of mapping and modeling methods as part of flood risk management business

The making of flood risk assessment and management plans for possible flood scale mapping and modeling and the modeling of changes in river habitats is a hundreds of millions worth business in Europe. Between the years 1998-2002 more than one hundred destructive (large) floods happened in Europe. After this period large devastating floods continue occurring in Europe as well as in the rest of the world. This project aims to improve the possibilities of Finnish companies in environmental and water fields to practice business in flood risk management, river dynamics, and water construction assignments in river environments.
