What we do and who we are

Winemakers around the world lose billions of dollars in lost revenue, grapes and building stocks every year due to natural disasters. A multidisciplinary European-Australian research team of engineers, seismologists, meteorologists, scientists and winelovers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Risklayer GmbH in Germany, Australian National University, Griffith University, University of Adelaide, University of New South Wales in Australia; as well as Greece and UCL in UK has set out to examine just how much this is, and the total risks associated with the wine industry and how to improve and mitigate these with respect to different natural disasters and climate change by developing a global risk index for wine regions.
