European Forum on Risk Governance & Societal Resilience

European Forum on Risk Governance & Societal Resilience

Recent crises shown the need for strengthening interactions in the event of natural or man-made disasters between scientific community, practitioners, city’s risk managers for major crises and citizens or local communities. The European Commission, through Horizon Europe, particularly the Cluster 3 work programme addressing Civil Security for Society, funded a range of projects developing tools and solutions in support to enhanced societal resilience, more precisely for increasing risk awareness and preparedness of citizens to any kind of disasters and improving risk management and governance.  

Moreover, there is an increased understanding of the importance of translating and contextualizing solutions to meet these challenges at national and local levels, to answer needs grounded in recent disasters and experiences. In this respect, a cluster of Disaster-Resilient Societies (DRS) projects disseminated new findings and practical information of direct relevance to municipal authorities and first responders in the framework of the European Forum on Governance of Risk Governance & Societal Resilience, organised within the CERIS framework, to facilitate this dissemination and interactions among the scientific community and city’s representatives. 

European Forum on Risk Governance & Societal Resilience and its audience were the perfect opportunity to engage in that work. Participants agreed that the event was very rich in ideas and provided great opportunity to meet new people, explore new opportunities and possibly, build new relationships.
