Collaborative research on flood resilience in urban areas (CORFU) (2010 - 2014)

Funding bodies: European Commission (Framework 7)

Collaborative Research on Flood Resilience in Urban areas (CORFU) is a four-year project (2010-2014) involving 15 European and Asian institutions, funded by a grant from the European Commission, Seventh Framework Programme. Professor Slobodan Djordjevic of the University of Exeter is Project Coordinator. Professor David Butler is also involved in CORFU as a member of the Executive Committee. Dr. Michael Hammond and Dr. Albert Chen are involved full time as postdoctoral researchers managing one of the CORFU work packages, and Anne Douglas-Crawford is Project Administrator.

The overall aim of CORFU is to enable European and Asian partners to learn from each other through joint investigation, development, implementation and dissemination of short to medium term strategies that will enable more scientifically sound management of the consequences of urban flooding in the future.
