Due to COVID, this 15th Annual Meeting was held online. Whilst we had hoped to hold the event in person, the ongoing uncertainty has meant we have taken the decision to postpone the in-person event to 2022. Although this online Annual Meeting was very different to what we are used to, the event still appeared to be a fantastic opportunity to share knowledge of recent projects, research and best practices, etc.

Sharing knowdledge internationally

On each of the four days, there was a 2 hour session from 15:00-17:00 (CEST), open to all our I-STORM members and covering a variety of topics based around different themes. This way all our members around the world were able to join the meeting and benefit from collaboration with international colleagues. It was fantastic to see so many people contributing and discussing the topics presented.

More information about this year’s Annual Meeting is available for all our members within our online members area (see below). Please contact events@i-storm.org for any other queries.

With a changing climate and sea level rise there is growing pressure on barriers to operate more frequently. During this webinar our speaker from the National Oceanography Centre (University of Southampton) talked about ongoing work on climate change and the impacts we’re likely to see on storm surge barriers.
