Description: The RISK-AWARE project aimed at developing an integrated system that exploits multiple data and information to forecast meteorological events and their geo-hydrological consequences. The main results of the project are: (i) the definition of methodologies, models and suitable data sets, (ii) the definition of guidelines for geo-hydrological risk prevention and management, (iii) the design and development of appropriate data communication and archive systems, (iv) the implementation of operational prototypes over selected areas, and (v) the deployment of the developed models and facilities to the end-users.
