More than €28m for 4 new climate adaptation projects

The European Commission is investing more than €28 million in four new projects to develop solutions for a better protection against extreme weather and natural disasters caused by climate change.

Two projects will work on solutions for protecting cultural heritage sites against natural hazards: HERACLES and STORM seek to propose non-invasive and non-destructive methods of surveying climate change impacts on cultural heritage sites including solutions for restoration and conservation. The projects will include test cases at cultural heritage sites in Greece, Italy, Portugal, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

The work of the BRIGAID and RESCCUE projects will focus on testing and improving climate adaptation solutions: BRIGAID aims to create a framework for assessing the effectiveness of novel products and services and provide support for their market uptake. And RESCCUE will develop a software tool for assessing the resilience and adaptation strategies of European cities based on case studies in Barcelona, Bristol and Lisbon.
