  • Project description (including photos if necessary)

 Purpose :  substantiation of scientific and technical priorities in the management plan of flood risk on the Romanian Danube Plain.

Priority objectives:

  1. Reconsideration of the defense lines of settlements against floods

 Develop digital model of land by LIDAR method for substantiating the concept of defense of settlements

 Develop flooding scenarios based on hydraulic modeling

  1. Return to nature of polder to create wetlands conservation interest (ex. SCI, SPA)

 Establishing the persistence of flooding and water by draining the premises dammed lakes former Bistreţ, Potelu, Suhaia, Greek, etc. Calarasi to their renaturation

  1. Assess the suitability of enclosures designed to restructure their economic activity as mixed chambers (agricultural / water storage polders)

 Rethinking economic activities dammed enclosures according to cost / benefit ratio for investment in maintenance defense dams and other hydraulic structures existing

 Establishing the flooding directed to store maximum water levels of the Danube, threatening defenses

  • Digital elevation model – DEM (project “CARTODD”, 2009);
  • Digitizing buildings / houses belonging localities;
  • HRLs (High Resolution Layers) and land cover (CLC project in 2012, 2012-2014);
  • Hydrographic Database (daily series of levels and flows at gas basins).
  • 1D2D hydraulic model of the Danube Delta
Damage curves for buildings, roads, forest, pastures.

  • Project name : Public FLOOD Emergency and Awareness SERVice- FLOOD-serv
  • Implementation time span : 2016-2019
  • Total budget : 2528630,63 Euro
  • Call : Horizon 2020 Comisia Europeana
  • As Partner

The overall objective of FLOOD-serv is to develop and to provide a pro-active and personalised citizen-centric public service application that will enhance the involvement of the citizen and will harness the collaborative power of ICT networks (networks of people, of knowledge, of sensors) to raise awareness on flood risks and to enable collective risk mitigation solutions and response actions. Other general objectives are: 1. Empowering local communities to directly participate in the design of emergency services dealing with floods mitigation actions. 2. Harness the power of new technologies, such as social media, and mobile technologies to increase the efficiency of public administrations in raising public awareness and education regarding floods risks, effects and impact. 3. Encourage the development and implementation of long-term, cost-effective and environmentally sound mitigation actions related to floods though an ICT-enabled cooperation and collaboration of all stakeholders: government, private sector, NGOs and other civil society organizations as well as citizens.

Whilst citizen participation in environmental policy making is still in its infancy, there are signs of a growing level of interest. The majority of citizens, though, both as individuals and as groups often feel disengaged from influencing environmental policies. They also remain unaware of publicly available information, such as the GEOSS or Copernicus initiatives. The SCENT project will alleviate this barrier. It will enable citizens to become the ‘eyes’ of the policy makers by monitoring landcover/ use changes in their everyday activities. This is done through a constellation of smart collaborative technologies delivered by the SCENT toolbox in TRLs 6-8: i) low-cost and portable data collection tools, ii) an innovative crowd-sourcing platform, iii) serious gaming applications for a large-scale image collection and semantic annotation, iv) a powerful machine learning based intelligence engine for image and text classification, v) an authoring tool for an easy customization by policy makers, vi) numerical models for mapping land-cover changes to quantifiable impact on flood risks and vii) a harmonization platform, consolidating data and adding it to GEOSS and national repositories as OGC-based observations. SCENT will be evaluated in two large scale demonstrations in Kifisos Attica and Danube Delta. Our consortium covers the complete stakeholder chain: industries in machine learning (IBM), SMEs in crowd-sourcing (U-Hopper), gaming (Xteam) and awareness raising (Carr), leading research institutes with expertise in hydrodynamic modelling (UNESCO-IHE), data harmonization and authoring tools (ICCS) and environmental monitoring (DDNI), NGOs at the pilot sites (HRTA, SOR) and policy makers/public bodies (Region of Attica). The SCENT initiative will go beyond the current project and form a Europeanwide citizen movement, created and fostered by the SCENT stakeholders that will ensure its sustainability and its complementarity with existing citizen partnerships.
