Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network

Banner of Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network Day launches on 7 December


The Commission published the Decision ((EU) 2021/1956) to establish the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network, with a strong Science Pillar, clearly referencing the DRMKC. This is a major step in the science-policy interface in the DRM domain. It is also an example of how a JRC Knowledge Centre can “mature” into a more stable and long-term initiative built-in in legislation.
