The FLOODrisk 2012 conference is the final conference of the Flood Control 2015 program. With this conference, the program will come to an end with the completion of the 2007 project plan. Piet Dircke, chairman of the Flood Control Foundation, looked back at a succesful innovation programme. So succesful, in fact, that the participating companies and research institutes decided to extend the collaboration in "Flood Control 2100".

Launch of FC2100

Under the name 'Flood Control 2100', new solutions will be developed for flood risk management ranging from flood protection to disaster risk reduction and spatial planning. New in this approach will be the even more explicit partnership between public and private entities. Dutch public organisations will take more risks with innovative approaches in their projects, while companies and research institutes will align their innovation goals with these projects. The Netherlands will be safer at lower costs.

For the introduction of Flood Control 2100, a short movie was developed. In the coming months the new (communication) structure will be finalized. Untill then, you can continue to reach out to us at [email protected]. For more information about Floodcontrol 2100 go to www.floodcontrol2100.com
