NERC grant success investigating financial planning for natural disasters

Congratulations to Louise Slater and John Hillier who are both involved in a successful NERC Standard Grant Proposal led by Alistair Milne (SBE) on “Financial planning for natural disasters: the case of flooding risk in Central Java”. The project was awarded £328k and will see a PDRA based in Geography for 21 months. An excellent example of a valuable cross-School initiative, in this case partnering SPGS with Business and Economics, Science and Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering.
