Neàpolis participated in the first in the meeting of the Consortium project SCORE ( Smart control of climate resilience in European coastal cities ). The event was held in Sligo (Ireland) from 28 to 30 June 2022.
Representatives of the 28 entities that make up the consortium met for three days to present the progress of the first year of the Atlantic Technological University (ATU) project
The meeting was the occasion to review the progress made in each work package (workpackage ) and to exchange views and ideas on some important issues to be addressed in the coming months in terms of the value of natural coastal defenses, projected chronic floods and how to address them, coastal risk management, data analysis and climate hazard statistics ⁇
These include the analysis of past climate events and the presentation of a first version of the web geoportal (future digital twin or digital twin ) that will allow the visualization of data on projects and climate threats, or solutions for adaptation to climate change based in ecosystems, among others. These and other results of the project will be available for the 10 European coastal cities that will participate in the project, among which are in Vilanova i la Geltrú.
The event was fully hybrid to ensure that all partners were represented at the meetings and in the fruitful conversations that accompanied each item on the agenda.
In addition to the numerous interesting and interactive sessions, the partners had the pleasure of taking a pleasant coastal walk to study nature-based solutions for coastal erosion.
