The Researcher Exchange was aimed at modelling extreme precipitation in Bangalore city and developing a model for obtaining vulnerable flooding areas and resilience/vulnerability assessment of urban water infrastructure in the study area. The primary objective was to develop a conceptual framework for addressing the problem of urban flooding and urban water infrastructure resilience analysis and learning the latest research outcomes from the Safe & SuRe ( project at Exeter. The secondary objective was to strengthen research capabilities of the two groups, build the ability to tackle research problems from a different perspective and exploring research ideas for future collaborations.
