Debris flow Modeling Courses
in Innsbruck (13.-14.11.2012) and Trento  (8.-9.11.2012)








PARAmount (“imProved Accessibility: Reliability and security of Alpine transport infrastructure related to mountainous hazards in a changing climate")

aims at improving hazard management strategies for infrastructure protection by the adaptation of existing tools and practices to the transport sector (debris-flow, avalanche, rockfall). The project will thus bring together expertise concerning natural hazards management and the institutions that need this expertise from a transportation point of view in an intensive transnational risk dialogue.

PARAmount is an Alpine Space 2007-2013 project, supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). September 2009 – November 2012


Post Graduate Course

October 23rd to 25th, 2012, Innsbruck





In the frame of the 3-day Post Graduate Course, organised by the Austrian project partners, the main results from PARAmount were presented and discussed. The main aim was showcasing and discussing the methods, tools and strategies improved and developed in the frame of the project, which could aid the improvement of accessibility and security of Alpine transport infrastructure in light of the potential impacts of climate change. During the excursion 2 prominent avalanche tracks were visited in the vicinity of the city of Innsbruck.
