The fifth edition of the INFRARISK- Summer Workshop was held at University of Minho, Guimarães, on the 15th of July 2019.
This year the workshop had the participation of Prof. Atilla Ansal and Dr. Desmond Hartford, members of Board of Advisors of the PhD program. Prof. José Luís Zêzere was the Keynote Speaker of the event and gave the lecture entitled ‘‘Spatial and temporal incidence of disastrous floods and landslides in Portugal during the last 150 years“.
