    1. Risk Analysis – flood sources, pathways
    and the vulnerability of “receptors”
    2. Risk Management – pre-flood measures
    and flood emergency management
    3. Technological integration – decision
    support and uncertainty assessment
    4. Pilot applications – at river, estuary and
    coastal sites
    5. Training and knowledge dissemination
    to professionals and the public including
    educational material
    6. Networking with other European and
    national initiatives
