There are seven Pilot Studies in FLOODsite covering areas liable to river, estuary or coastal flooding.
The Pilot Studies provide real-life sites with real and specific problems upon which knowledge, methods and tools can be developed and tested. They also allow for feedback into the research and development process from flood risk managers and stakeholders. The overall objective of the Pilot Studies is to ensure that FLOODsite deliverables are of real value, practicable and usable.
None of the Pilot Studies test all the FLOODsite research, but all our main results are involved in at least two pilot areas.
