AdriaMORE. Celebrating a successful conclusion

Published on 19/09/2019 (last modified 19/09/2019)

AdriaMORE, coordinated by the Service of Territorial Cooperation IPA of the Abruzzo Region, is about to conclude. Many are the activities completed during 1 and a half year in view of the final goal, that is to reduce the impact caused by events such as storms or floods to the territories and the people living along the coastline in Italy and Croatia, due to more and more frequent severe weather conditions.


The project capitalizes on ADRIARadNet, a project funded by the IPA Adriatic CBC programme, and has taken the integrated system developed by the previous project a further step ahead: The software is now capable of acquiring and elaborating meteorological radar data from systems with different features, and enables to promptly alert the local civil protection services and authorities in the areas affected by extreme weather events. Multi-level collaboration will be rendered possible, with greater efficacy, to forecast events at high hydrometereological risk, thus mitigating and better managing possible damages to the people and the territories along the coastal areas in Italy and Croatia, to increase safety.

The final event took place in Pescara, at Aurum, on September 18th, 2019 to present the pursued results and final outputs. The conference was chaired by Ms. Paola Di Salvatore, coordinator of AdriaMORE with the participation of the project partners from Italy and Croatia and the delegate of the Italy-Croatia Programme. The Mayor of Pescara Carlo Masci and the Councillor of the Municipality of Pescara in charge of Civil Protection Eugenio Seccia took the floor. The conference was hosted by the Municipality of Pescara for greater involvement of the local stakeholders – the direct beneficiaries of the integrated system developed by the project – who will be the key vehicle to capitalize the results.

AdriaMORE ran for the prestigious prize promoted by the DG REGIO, RegioStars Awards 2019. As a good example of a project co-financed by Cohesion Policy, it has been considered for publication in the DG Regio database of best practices for future activities of visibility and dissemination on regional policies.
