We create knowledge for management of climate related risks!
We search for answers to questions about risks connected to extrem weather such as intense precipitation, floods and windstorms.
We work in a wide manner with knowledge on natural disasters, societal planning and learning and we are good at linking our research with municipal and regional practice.
