The research group led by prof. Gian Battista Bischetti participated in the Workshop dedicated to Hydrogeological instability organized by the National Research Council (CNR) Area 1 of Milan, presenting the first results of the TREE: HERO project on Wednesday, May 22nd.

During the meeting the projects of numerous Italian Universities financed by the Cariplo Foundation were presented and themes concerned the study of the dynamics of instability phenomena, the hydrogeological protection of the territory and the dissemination of knowledge and new technologies to the citizens. This event allowed Dott. Paolo Fogliata to illustrate the motivations, objectives and progress of the work of TREE: HERO.

The results are the outcome of the collection of data regarding the structures characteristic of woods, which is taking place in the field in collaboration both with colleagues from the University of Padua and the University of Applied Sciences of Berne and with local administrations of the Valle Camonica such as the Adamello Regional Park and Comunità Montana, and the processing of such data in order to evaluate the consequent protective function optimally. All this aims to quantify the role of forests in the prevention and mitigation of natural risks in order to support decisions in land and forestry management planning.

Moreover, the meeting with the organizers of the event, the MOPRAM project team, and the other research groups was a real opportunity for growth and comparison in the scientific field, but with the aim of providing practical tools to counteract natural disasters, now commonplace.
