We're happy to announce a new project in the DCNA: MEASURE is a KIRAS project that started in November. It aims at developing an innovative evaluation tool that supports the evaluation of exercises through a wide variety of measurement sensors and the analysis of key performance indicators. The kick-off event took place in November at the AIT in Vienna.

Disaster Competence Network Austria is a cooperation platform of universities and research institutions in the field of security and disaster research.
What we do
Our goal is to transfer scientific insights into practice through collaborative research and education activities with stakeholders, as well as providing information to decision-makers in the event of a disaster.
Risk and disaster communication
On October 26, we exhibited as part of the open house of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. We were available to visitors for questions about security and disaster research.
