Brigaid Welcomes Bas Jonkman

27 maart 2017 door Webmaster Hydraulic Engineering

BRIGAID is a 4-year project (2016-2020) under EU Horizon2020. They aim to effectively bridge the gap between innovators and end-users in resilience to floods, droughts and extreme weather.

Their goal is to advance the technical, social and market readiness of innovations simultaneously. This smoothens the development path, because technical, social and market requirements can be incorporated in the design, business model and market approach early on. BRIGAID aims to become the quality label for the development of innovations for climate adaptation and risk reduction from climate-related disaster impacts in Europe and beyond.

This month BRIGAID introduces its latest addition to their team: Prof. dr. ir Bas Jonkman. He will be filling in the role of BRIGAID's Scientific Coordinator. His specializations include flood risk management in delta systems, and design and investigation of innovative flood risk reduction techniques. Currently, he is leading a number of national and international research projects focusing on nature-based flood protection, and the forensic investigation of failures of flood defences.
