Expert opinions and advice
The SLF represents an important interface between research and application. We also apply and share our technical know-how and expertise in expert opinions and by providing advice, producing guidelines and offering education and training. We can deliver end-to-end solutions to complex problems relating to avalanches. We have a long track record, in particular, of producing top-quality, comprehensive expert reports – based on the experience of our long-term staff as well as the latest research results. We provide our consulting services both at home and abroad (e.g. in Iceland, Chile, Alaska and Russia). Our clients include public institutions, such as highway departments and communities, as well as private organisations, including engineering companies, and railway and cableway operators (ski resorts).
In addition, we provide expert opinions for the courts as required, for instance, after avalanche accidents.
