ENHANCE is an EU-funded research consortium consisting of 24 knowledge institutes and SMEs from 11 countries. From 2012 to 2016 the consortium studied ten cases on risk reduction of catastrophic events and developed risks assessment tools to enhance society’s resilience to natural disasters. The cases span a broad range of hazards and impacts, ranging from alpine hazards impacting railway transport to volcanic eruptions impacting air transport. The project has shown that managing risks by means of stakeholder partnerships and widening the risk information basis are critical for effective risk reduction.
