The team

r.avaflow builds on an interdisciplinary group of leading experts in mathematics, physics, geotechnical engineering, geomorphology and geoinformation sciences. The core team, composed of researchers from German and Austrian universities and reseach centres (together, seven intitutions), is supported by a number of international experts.
