This 2-day event aims to share the achievements of the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network (UCPKN) Science Pillar in addressing challenges such as compound, concurrent and cascade events which need to be included in risk analysis or the communication challenges in risk management, among others. Join us if you too want to:
- Know from the operational scientific networks about their needs and expectations from the Science Pillar (session 1)
- Hear from the other scientific networks how they shape their science advice/research agendas accordingly (session 2)
- Learn from the Member States their views on the opportunities/challenges of the integration of the various parallel, complex, connected processes like the National Risk Assessment, the (next) implementation of Disaster Resilience Goals, the development of Scenarios; we want to engage with the large community of DRMKC, also beyond the EU, to get inspiration for new answers to old and new problems (session 3)
- Reflect on the topic of accessibility and communication of scientific knowledge and will present experiences of collaboration between scientists, practitioners, policy- and decision makers as well as application of research in civil protection and disaster risk management planning and operations (session 4).
We will look into needs and gaps but also into solutions and implementations of good practices. We will share the status of initiatives being designed/implemented in the Commission to provide support for the mentioned challenges and we will collect feedbacks and ideas for a proposal plan of action of the Science Pillar for the next 2 years (2023-2024).
This year’s Annual Seminar — co-hosted by the French Ministry of Interior, co-organized with DG ECHO and with opening remarks by the Czech EU Presidency — will be a hybrid event.
