The Disaster Research Conference Fachtagung Katastrophenforschung 2023 will take place from September 11th to 12th at the Montanuniversität Leoben. The aim is to bring together science and practice in disaster management in order to be as well prepared as possible for the challenges of preparing for and dealing with disasters. At the symposium, research results and projects will be presented from the application side and possibilities for utilization will be pointed out.
