Flood Risk Management

Flooding is a problem worldwide, and the challenge will become even larger in the future. There is a lack of professionals with the interdisciplinary skillset needed to tackle the environmental, social and economic aspects of the problem.

Existing masters programmes on floods offered in the European Union cover many technical aspects but lack integration. This programme follows the holistic approach and is explicitly designed to cover a wide range of topics - from drivers and natural processes to models, decisions and socio-economic consequences and institutional environment and is therefore an important advance in water education for Europe.
