On the 20th February TICASS, the Consortium promoted by Regione Liguria on Innovative Technologies for Environmental Control and Sustainable Development, organised a workshop about “Research that generates innovation for a sustainable future” in Genoa, Italy.
Within the thematic session on “The perception of flood and landslide risk”, Alessandra Marchese from GISIG presented PEARL and, in particular, the work in progress to implement the Genoa case study. In front of a public of more than 60 people, she could not only illustrate the project, but also exchange practices and ideas with other five speakers coming from different backgrounds (politics, engineering, science and research), especially concerning technologies and tools able to support flood and landslide prevision and prediction.
Furthermore, the event hosted a poster session where PEARL was showcased together with many other interesting projects. An abstract outlining the objectives and outcomes of the research supported the poster.
It was a great success in terms of outreach for PEARL, which was well received by the 200 people coming from 10 Italian regions who attended the workshop.
