Flood Prevention and Resilience Programme

University of Hull’s Flood Innovation Centre is helping businesses better prepare for flooding

SMEs in the Humber (Sheffield City Region is included), may lack the knowledge and expertise required to tackle the growing flood risk facing the region.

The Flood Innovation Centre at the University of Hull has joined forces with local authorities and key stakeholders in the Humber region, with the aim of increasing flood resilience in the city and surrounding areas.

Together, the collaboration has identified a major challenge facing flood resilience – SMEs and larger businesses often lack the knowledge needed to deliver on the Natural Flood Management (NFM) schemes needed to tackle flooding.

In a bid to plug this skills gap, the University’s Flood Innovation Centre has launched a series of free, interactive workshops which cover a range of innovative flood response methods in both urban and rural environments.

Starting on May 12, the five-week-long programme will bring together businesses with experts in flood resilience.

Who should attend?

Principally, small and medium-sized businesses looking to expand into natural flood management work, including:

  • Drainage & grounds maintenance contractors;
  • Designers/planners responsible for developing schemes across wider areas;
  • Farmers and land managers looking to understand the opportunities open to them to access funding for flood management interventions;
  • Agents who advise land managers;
  • Application writers and advisors on accessing funding;
  • Anyone who has an interest in the NFM market, especially in the Humber area.

The first step is to register your interest by completing an enquiry form.
