The Institute of River & Coastal Engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) carries out research and education in the areas of flood management, coastal hydraulics, and hydrodynamics. The institute also collaborates on EU-wide projects related with the aforementioned topics, such as PEARL, CORFU, and SMARTeST. One of the tools they developed is the Flood Resilience Portal (access here) to assess household losses due to flooding.
