International Network for Storm Surge Barriers
The I-STORM network unites the public administrations of the countries that build, manage, operate and maintain moveable storm surge barriers. The network aims to share and exchange experiences and knowledge on operations and maintenance of large movable storm surge barriers so as to optimise the management of barriers in an innovative way. Each year a conference is organised at which professionals working on storm surge barriers meet. The network also organises a range of other activities, from simple phone calls and conference calls to field trips, traineeships, joint projects and setting up information facilities.
