Amongst these presentations one was highlighted by the EGU and a Press Conference on it (Potential future exposure of European land transport infrastructure to rainfall-induced landslides throughout the 21st century by Matthias Schlögl and Christoph Matulla) was organized. The paper given on this occasion can be found here.
Medizin populär: the main article deals with potential consequences of climate change (based on interviews).
Niederösterreichische Nachrichten (NÖN) and Land Niederösterreich published a special issue on the Thirty-year war, which contains a chapter on the climate of that time. From the medieval climate optimum through the Little Ice Age (LIA) to the beginning recent warming, which we gladly contributed.
End of November (23th to 25th) the European Freight and Logistics Leaders Forum (F&L) hosted a conference on ‘Crossing the Alps – Connecting Europe, opportunities North, South and East of Italy‘ in Baveno close-by Milan (please see the Agenda here). Discussions and presentations covered a broad range of thematic fields as: Quantifying traffic flows over the Alps; Corridor strategies; Creating critical mass and efficiency competitively deep into the hinterland; Smarter utilization of infrastructure; Shipper’s trans-alpine flows; Interviews amongst which one was with Romano Prodi (10th President of the European Commission, twice Prime Minister of Italy, …); And many more significant topics involving large scale European commercial harbors, the Chinese Silk Route into Europe — one Belt, one Road, … — please see the Agenda (below) and for further details the F&L Leaders Website (here). Aside from the topics, which all carry quite some weight for Europe’s future prosperity this conference was under the shadow of BREXIT and the US election. Nonetheless, it was certainty a splendid and exceptionally fruitful event that stimulated discussions, relationships and future co-operations between European Leaders in Freight, Transport and Logistics.
