Stakeholders' Reference Group
To ensure that the project addresses the critical concerns in the sector and that innovative, practitioner-oriented solutions are being produced, we have created the Stakeholders’ Reference Group. Its primary function is to assure feedback and awareness by key stakeholders in the market, which will have an essential impact on future exploitation opportunities. SRG workshops have been organised throughout the lifespan of the project to validate and refine final products and ensure their uptake from the market.
To date, we have created a network of stakeholders who have supported the development of FORESEE and its results, securing our position in Europe and globally. As of February 2022, we have extended our network to 243 contacts from 92 entities and 23 countries across 4 continents.
CWA 17819 “Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events”
On the 22nd November, a first milestone for FORESEE has been achieved after the official publication of the CEN Workshop agreement CWA 17819:2021 ‘Guidelines for the assessment of resilience of transport infrastructure to potentially disruptive events’.

FORESEE Final Event
The final conference will unveil the FORESEE results, delivered by experts from the private sector, research, standardization, transport operators, digital services providers and academia. The event will be held online on Tuesday, 22 February 2022. To set the scene, an initial panel with representatives from UNECE, European Commission (DG MOVE and DG CLIMA), World Road Association and the European Union Agency for Railways will present the policy and regulatory framework in climate change and cybersecurity.

Sustainability of Results
The sustainability of the FORESEE results can be understood through the following 12 mechanisms:
- To demonstrate how structural deformations can be detected from satellites and combined with in-situ sensor data and virtual physical environments (BIM and others) to create a dynamic real-world assets.
- To implement an asset failure prediction capability by mapping the highest vulnerability areas, assessing current status and mechanical stability of key assets, traffic behavior and prediction, possible re-routings, failure conditions.
- To provide resilience and service definitions, indicators and objectives and how they should be used from the transport infrastructure managers’ point of view., applying CBA analysis to support operational decisions.
- To offers ways of intelligibly processing, integrate, fusing and interconnecting Big streams of Data offering means of extracting adequate conclusions and predictions.
- To improve the currents calculations for determining flows of water and floodings.
- To provide one single smartened slope protection kit (mass retaining + control erosion membrane) which improves resilience while minimising production & installation costs.
- To design new permeable pavements aimed to improve network’s resilience to extreme weather events.
- To improve the design of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SDS) for flood-proofing and surface water management.
- To provide performance-based designs concepts for safety routes for efficiency traffic management.
- FORESEE incorporates the “dynamic” approach to the communication and contingency plans in which the time-dependent evolution of the people and threat is considered.
- FORESEE has updated the Design, construction and remediation plans and the Operational and maintenance plans.
- FORESEE has explored the risk perception and decision-making in a way that can capture users’ attitudes to transport risks allowing developing a more detailed contingency plans.
