The Commission has made public the 2019 report of the H2020 PASAG on Optimising access to dual-use R&T and R&D results for security.
This report brings very timely insights on the challenges and opportunities for the exploitation of synergies between civil security and defence research and technology development in view of the funding programmes foreseen for the next Multi-annual Financial Framework.
Inspired by the same modeling and mathematical laws used to predict the spread of pandemics, researchers at Texas A&M University have created a model to accurately forecast the spread and recession process of floodwaters in urban road networks. With this new approach, researchers have created a simple and powerful mathematical approach to a complex problem.
