WINDSURFER is a 3 year project that is bringing together eight leading research institutions across Europe to co-develop new methods, tools and assessments of extreme wind and wave risk with a focus on Insurance, Forestry and Energy

Extreme winds pose major risks to life, property and forestry, while extreme ocean waves can impact on offshore infrastructures and coastal communities.

To support the Insurance, Forestry and Energy sectors, WINDSURFER will develop:

  • New methods and tools
  • Impacts studies
  • Localised climate information

to better quantify current extreme wind and wave risk and understand how it might change in the future.

WINDSURFER is funded through the ERA4CS ERA-NET and the European Commission
