It is clear that FLOODsite is directly relevant to the needs of the Directive.  The explanatory memorandum to the Commission’s first proposal for the Directive states:

“The Sixth Framework Programme is supporting the largest ever EU flood research project, “FLOODsite”, which is developing integrated flood risk analysis and management methods.”

There is a growing expectation on the contribution of FLOODsite to the implementation of the Directive once it is transposed into national legislation.  It is important to identify what should be expected as outcomes for the research and, of equal importance, what are the boundaries of the contribution of the FLOODsite Integrated Project.

FLOODsite is a research project.  It is undertaking predominantly applied research, with elements of basic research and some pre-competitive technological development.  It is not a demonstration of current technologies, nor a compilation of best practice nor an application of scientific methods to achieve some site-specific objectives.

The outputs of FLOODsite are principally advances in knowledge and understanding on a variety of issues within the general realm of flood risk management which have been pilot-tested in the context of some real-life situations.

The FLOODsite partners are committed to working with others for the implementation of our results in practice, however, such activities lie outside the scope of the Integrated Project.
