Keynote Speeches

To encapsulate our international theme we have brought together keynote speakers from around the world. They will share with you experiences and impacts of flooding, management of flooding and policies implemented to deal with flooding. 

Special Sessions

FLOODrisk 2016 will not be a conference of presentations alone. We have teamed up with leading FRM projects and organisations to bring you interactive sessions led by experts in the field. Each session will be run in it's own style, so for specific information please refer to our website http://floodrisk2016.net/programme/ 

Technical Tours

Once the conference has ended, and after being inspired by its numerous presentations and findings, you will not want to miss the great examples of modern day flood risk in practice that you can find in and around the host city of Lyon and the nearby city of Grenoble. FLOODrisk2016 has compiled two tours, which provide a unique chance to see French science and policy in action.

  • Flood Risk Management Highlights in Grenoble - full day tour
  • Flood Risk Management Highlights in Lyon - half day tour

Exhibition

There will be an exhibition hall including 39 exhibition stands of prominent worldwide FRM solutions providers (to see the full list of exhibitors, click here) where we will be taking lunches and coffee breaks.
