Welcome to CRUE ERA-NET

CRUE ERA-NET aims to introduce structure within the area of European Flood Research by improving co-ordination between national programmes. The vision for the CRUE ERA-NET action on flooding is to develop strategic integration of research at the national funding and policy development levels within Europe to provide knowledge and understanding for the sustainable management of flood risks.


CRUE research was perfomed in 35 case studies. An interactive map with case study factsheets and a list of deliverables can be retrieved here:

Seven research projects were funded within the 2nd Era-Net CRUE funding initiative between 2009 and 2011. These have generated new knowledge, approaches and methods to enhance community resilience to flooding. Detailed information can be found here:
