Field defence practice in the frame of the LIFE SandBoil project (Gyor)

24th of August 2021

The event was mainly carried out in Győr (North-Western Hungary), where the press conference took place. In addition, two other nearby locations were involved. Both of them are target areas of the LIFE SandBoil project. During the event, the main infrastructures of the of the local flood protection system have been shown and some demonstrations of their functionality were carried out. The event was broadcasted via Facebook in a free and public way and involved 9 departments and ~200 employees of the Water Directorate. This strategy enabled to show different locations, which will be interested by the LIFE SandBoil project, and to include a larger audience. The event also included a presentation of the main actions of the LIFE SandBoil project by the University of Bologna, and that of the ICPDR (the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River) and the EUSDR (the EU Strategy for the Danube Region) as umbrella Institutions of the Danube basin water management. The event was a unique and successful opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of the flood protection measures in an operative context.
