Climate adaptation a pilot study

Reference number
Coordinator Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan - KTH Avdelningen för Betongbyggnad
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration October 2022 - September 2023
Status Completed

Important results from the project

The purpose of the project is to identify knowledge gaps and research needs in the area of infrastructure adaptation to climate change. The expected result is a series of prioritized proposals for research projects in the area. The report ends with twelve proposals for research needs.

Expected long term effects

The research on climate change is extensive. However, most of it is about developing measures to reduce climate change, while a much smaller part focuses on adapting the built environment to the expected climate changes. Here, research needs to increase significantly, not least because research takes a long time to be carried out and even longer time is needed to implement the results. The report contains 12 R&D proposals on e.g. changed loads, protection, reinforcement, movement and the competition between different building materials in a changed climate.
