About FLOODrisk

Following the successful FLOODrisk 2008 and 2012 conferences, held in Oxford (UK) and Rotterdam (Netherlands) and following the first round of implementation of the European Flood Directive, FLOODrisk 2016 brings together researchers, policy makers and practitioners from across the world to share experience and progress made in flood risk research, policy and management practice.

FLOODrisk 2016 includes contributions from a variety of national, European and international flood related initiatives as well as wider international practice. In particular, science policy interfacing, the applicability of flood risk research into practice, communication and international networking will be considered.We look forward to contribute to the next conference in 2020 in Budapest.
