Project objectives

The aim of the PREVIEW project is to increase the resilience of the waterway infrastructure in Germany. Therefore, the damage effects and consequences will be analyzed and processed on the basis of the three safety scenarios of natural events, technical or human failure and hostile attacks. For the first time, the entirety of the hazards for the population as well as for transport and economy will be analysed. The resulting findings will be used to draw up contingency plans in order to effectively counter these hazards.
