ICCS Role:


Development of a Decision Support System for Improved Resilience and Sustainable Reconstruction of historic areas to cope with Climate Change and Extreme Events based on Novel Sensors and Advanced Modelling Tools

HYPERION aims to leverage

  • existing tools and services (e.g., climate/extreme events models, and their impacts, decay models of building materials, Copernicus services, etc.) and
  • novel technologies (terrestrial and satellite imaging for wide-area inspection, advanced machine learning, etc.)

to deliver an integrated resilience assessment platform, addressing multi-hazard risk understanding, better preparedness, faster, adapted and efficient response, and sustainable reconstruction of historic areas.

HYPERION will take into account the local eco-systems in the CH areas, mapping out their interactions and following a truly integrated/sustainable reconstruction approach (technical, social, institutional, environmental and economic level), by incorporating active communities participation (using the PLUGGY social platform ) and by supporting new business models based on the concept of a “load-balancing” economy, (using an algorithm that acts like a “reverse proxy”, distributing client traffic across different companies within the same sector) and offering financial risk-transfer tools (insurance, Catastrophe-CAT-bonds ) that can ensure the immediate funds availability to fuel timely build-back-better efforts.
