IAG GRANTS for the International Conference on Analysis and Management of Changing Risks for Natural Hazard, Padua, Italy, 18-19 November, 2014

The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) offered 2 grants of 250 Euros each to PhD students in Geomorphology from Europe (except Italy) who were willing to take part in the Conference on Analysis and Management of Changing Risks for Natural Hazards , to be held in Padua, Italy, on 18-19 November 2014.
The Conference provided an opportunity to discuss multi-hazard risks and multi-disciplinary research results on the effects of changing of hydro-meteorological risks and their effects on planning strategies. The conference focused 1) on natural hazard process understanding and innovative methodologies for quantitative hazard and risk forecasts, and 2) on the integration of engineering, socio-economic and human sciences in risk management and prevention planning in practice.
The Conference represented the culmination of the EC projects CHANGES (www.changes-itn.eu) and IncREO (www.increo-fp7.eu) and provided a forum for exchange of ideas related to effective risk management strategies.
