AGEO Final Conference was held on the 19th and 20th of April at the Congress Centre of LNEC in Lisbon, Portugal.
The AGEO Consortium, formed by experts from 13 institutions and five countries, presented the results obtained through four years of close work with the citizens in the four pilot studies created for the project. In these pilots, collaboration with local communities and institutions was crucial to improve risk mitigation systems in zones affected by geohazards. Thanks to the knowledge obtained with the interactions with the citizens, local authorities and protection services, AGEO identified ways to enhance geohazard risk mitigation measures to preserve human lifes and reduce property damages.
The event was divided in two parts: the first session, cross-sectional components of the project where presented, such as general management, communication and dissemination actions, and the use of Copernicus services and tools developed by the AGEO Consortium during the four years of the project. The second session was dedicated to the four pilots, where the leaders of each one of the studies presented the results obtained and the lessons learned.
