The project wanted to offer improvements in available information and skills related to adaptation and better decision making (probability forecasts and uncertainties is in crisis). The value of a prediction depends on the quality (accuracy and security) of the predictions, so that decisions can be made based on the available information. For both aspects (better and / or more reliable decisions) new methods and techniques are developed and used in research applications. The objectives of the project were:

Some examples carried out work are:
