The objectives of the agreement are to foster joint activities for research cooperation and technology transfer in the field of Predictive Territory Management (PTM) and related fields using geographic imaging technology and data and numerical methods and modelling tools available to ICGC and CIMNE, respectively. Applications of PTM envisaged in the short term are the modelling and simulation of risk scenarios related to water and air pollution hazards, traffic mobility and pedestrian crowd motions under extreme events, among others.
