The key objective is to increase the management capacity of responding to marine and coastal hazards in the Adriatic basin, and mitigate damage impacts caused by increasingly frequent extreme weather conditions along the coastal regions in Italy and Croatia.
AdriaMORE intends to capitalize on the 2007-2013 IPA Adriatic CBC programme - funded projects ADRIARadnet and CapRadNet, which developed an integrated system to observe and forecast possible scenarios at high hydro-meteorological risk for civil protection purposes.
On Day 1 of the meeting, the 4 project partners presented their organizations:
- Abruzzo Region – Service of Territorial Cooperation as the Lead Partner (IT)

Parallel, the first Steering Committee was held to give an overview of the future steps to be undertaken, and to discuss financial and administrative issues on the project.
