Dick Fenner and Andre Serrenho have secured funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme as part of a large consortium including colleagues in Land Economy.

The project will be led and co-ordinated by Dr Leon Kapetas, a former Research  Associate in the Centre for Sustainable Development who worked with Dick on Urban Flood Resilience. Leon is now based in Greece and works for the consultant Draxis. The project is scheduled to  start in 2021 and is called "Managing REsilient NeXUs Systems through Participatory Systems Dynamics Modelling" (REXUS). The work will draw on Andre and Dicks's experience in studying coupled resource flows and will develop the dynamic systems modelling tools to relate the flows and stocks of water, energy, food and climate systems across 4 case study areas in Europe and South America.
